  • Quality craftsmanship.
  • A functional piece of art.
  • Made from sustainably harvested local wood.

The Maker's Process:

Artisan woodworkers make these lovely wooden utensils just like back in the good old days by following these steps: 

  1. The perfect block of wood is selected.
  2. A custom template is laid on the wood and the shape is drawn out.
  3. The block is carefully guided through a band saw to make the basic shape.
  4. Rough sanding gets the piece closer to the end shape.
  5. When making a spoon, the bowl is gouged out to the desired depth.
  6. The piece is sanded again, by hand, using increasingly finer sandpaper until the desired smoothness has been reached.
  7. Next is everyone's favorite step - the piece is rubbed with the maker's own blend of edible cooking oils and a little beeswax.
  8. All that's left is to step back and admire the piece as a sustainably produced piece of functional art.

Hand wash only please. Oil occasionally to keep your wooden utensils looking their best.

Due to the nature of each item being individually handmade, some variations may occur in shape, wood color and grain from the items pictured. Each one is unique and beautiful.

Size: Length 18 1/2", Bowl Width 3 1/2", Bowl Length 5 1/2". Sizes are approximate.

Lead time: 7 - 10 days. The Archote Family hand carves their work to order especially for you. The wood supply may also be limited. This process can take a little extra time, but it's worth the wait for these Artisan pieces.

Handmade Large Wooden Spoon

I do not recomend this spoon if you are wanting to actually cook with it. The size is good but the bowl is very rough which makes it messy to use.

Thanks for the feedback Dorothy. The style of this woodworker is to leave the carving marks in the bowl of the spoon as shown in the pictures. Sorry you were not satisfied with the item. We are more than happy to take the item back in return and offer you a full refund. We will send you an email with the information about returning the spoon if decide to do so. Thanks for supporting local artisans and small businesses.

Large Wood Spoon

This amazing spoon is beautifully made and well balanced. The bowl is not shallow and gets the job done for my large pots of soups and tomato sauce filled with meatballs and sausage. It’s strong and moves the food well. Strong and smoothly finished. You need this!!!!

Hi Toni. Thanks for taking the time to review the Handmade Large Wood Spoon. We love hearing how much our customers like our wooden utensils. If only we could have a taste of that tomato sauce with meatballs and sausage, that would really be great! Enjoy! And thanks for continuing to support local Artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
