Wooden hand carved spoons...
Wooden spoon carving... this is a hobby I've gotten into recently, Scroll down to see various styles in several wood types, Email me to discuss style and wood type based on the number you see. For example number 13 is shown in a straight walnut (photo 5) or a slightly curved koa wood(photo4), and number 1 and 3(photo 1) are similar shape but 1 is walnut with a slightly curved handle. In photo 1 number 13 and 9 are from a tiger striped piece of maple that is rare, and spoon number 5 in this first photo is your basic shape shown here in a cherry, Number 10 is Hawaiian koa, number 8 & 11 are walnut, and both 3's are koa but notice how dark one is... You can custom order anything... they're just fun to make and cook with... maybe just reference the photo number and also the spoon number and email to discuss wood species and handle length / shape / size/ etc. Pricing will vary on type but should be between 40$ for a number 11 and 26$ for a number 2 or 13 and 32$ for a number 14 on photo 4. My spoons are generally meant to be rustic with visible tool markings (knifes and chisels) intentionally left showing, They're meant to be asymmetrical, each spoon is unique. After carving is complete, oil (food grade mineral) is applied twice, and each spoon gets wet soaked 3+ times, this raises the grain, and each is lightly sanded and oiled again... then they are ready to use. To maintain, oil them when they seem dry with any food grade oil, wash in warm soapy water, avoid dishwashers, let air dry, and a very light sanding may be needed from time to time if they feels rough to the touch.
