Handmade Short Wood Spatula

This beautifully Artisan crafted Handmade Short Wood Spatula is great for when you need extra control and sturdiness without hot metal. Stronger than your run of the mill plastic or metal spatula, there's no concern here about melting or warping. 

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

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.

Details:

  • 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!

Size: Length 8 1/2", Width 3 1/4"

Made in:  Leslie, AR

Lead time: 7 - 10 days. The Archote Family hand carves their work from wood that is sustainably harvested from local land. This process can take a little extra time, but it's worth the wait for these craftsman pieces.

Good quality but poor design
Hi Oleksandr. Thanks for your review of our Handmade Short Wood Spatula. We are glad to hear that you appreciate the quality of the piece and we are sorry that the width doesn't meet your needs. We are happy to take it back on return for a full refund. The description identifies the width as 3.5 inches. Since they are handmade, they do vary a bit from piece to piece. You may find the Long Wood Spatula at 3 inches wide or the Square Edged Spatula at 2.5 inches wide to be more to your liking. We will follow up with you with an email with return instructions and links to the alternative spatulas. Thanks for supporting LocalWe and small business!
