Handmade Short Wood Spatula

This Short Wood Spatula is handmade in America. This one's a best seller. Use it for your omelettes and pancakes or when you need some width and sturdiness to scrape, stir, fold and flip. It's stronger than your run of the mill spatula too. You'll love finding new uses for it every day. 

Hand carved by Artisan woodworkers in Leslie, Arkansas from sustainably harvested local wood.

Pairs great with our Handmade Long Wood Spatula. Get them together in the drop down list and save.

Even makes a great bench scraper.

This Handmade Short Wood Spatula is ambidextrous and works well for both righties and lefties. 

These handmade cooking utensils are made with timber that's sustainably harvested from local land. The maker may also use woods recovered 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.


  • Handmade
  • Each item is tagged with its wood variety and other information
  • All pieces are toxin free and easy to wash
  • Leave 'em out of the dishwasher for the sake of longevity
  • With simple basic care like hand washing and an occasional oiling, these spoons should last a lifetime, or even a couple generations
  • Each item is an individual piece with it's own characteristics

Due to the nature of each item being individually handmade, slight variations will occur with wood grain and appearance from those pictured.

The Process:

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!
