Hand carved by Artisan woodworkers in Leslie, Arkansas from sustainably harvested local wood.
These handmade wooden cooking utensils use timber that's sustainably harvested from local land. They may also use recovered woods from storm damaged trees and scraps from other area wood workers. Their primary woods are Black Walnut and Cherry, though they may occasionally have Silver Maple, Osage Orange, Pecan and White Oak.

There are about ten steps in the spoon-making process. Custom created templates are laid on the wood of choice and shapes are drawn out. Each piece is then carefully guided through a band saw before being sanded down to its desired shape. Next, if shaping a spoon, the bowls are gouged out to their desired depth. Then the pieces are sanded again, by hand, using increasingly finer sandpaper until the desired smoothness has been reached. Next is the final step, everyone’s favorite - the piece is rubbed with Red Road's own blend of edible cooking oils and a little beeswax. All that's left is to admire it as a sustainably produced piece of functional art!
