Why do Chefs prefer Wooden Spoons?Wooden Spoons Carved by Crafty Owl

A carved wooden spoon is one of the most useful tools in any kitchen.  They look good, they feel good and they multi-task!  Wooden spoons multi-task?  Yes they do!

Tom's carved wooden spoons feel good in the hand.   Unlike mass-machined wooden spoons,  these spoons are thick and solid.  You can use your wooden spoon for stirring, dipping, dishing or serving.  Some people even use their spoons for breaking apart frozen beef and chicken - they are that solid!

Wood naturally inhibits bacterial growth, so a wooden spoon is not only safe to use but looks great too!  A wooden spoon won't scrape or damage your expensive cookware.  The benefits are numerous and most professional chefs will tell you that a quality wooden spoon is one of the most important tools you can have in the kitchen.   So what are you waiting for?  Order one of Tom's hand carved wooden spoons today!

Each spoon gets it's start by hand selecting lumber that will provide an attractive grain pattern adding beauty and warmth to the piece.  The spoon's shape is drawn on the board and cut out with a jigsaw.  Using a variety of chisels and wood rasps, the bowl is hollowed out by hand.  Since everyone has a different grip, some spoons are placed on the lathe and the handles are turned freehand.  Other spoons, Tom shapes the handle by hand.  Finally the outside of the bowl is rounded and the entire piece is sanded smooth.  Each spoon is then oiled with food safe mineral oil and pure beeswax to bring out its' beauty!

This spoon was carved from a nice thick piece of 2"  Cherry.  The handle features interesting patches of creme color wood highlighted by flashes of darker brown  grain.  The grain pattern swirls around the inside of the bowl creating a dark contrast to the handle, and the outside of the bowl shows a truly gorgeous ring pattern.    A really pretty piece of wood - thanks Mother Nature!  When you get this spoon in your hands, you'll find it hard not to run your fingers over it to feel every smooth hand carved ripple.  You can't get a spoon like this in a store - that is for sure!  Just over 12.25" in length, the spoon bowl measures approx. 3.75" long by approx.  2.5" at the widest point.   The bowl itself was carved about 2/3rds into the wood, giving this spoon a nice depth with a substantial heft which comes in handy for heavy duty mixing.  You will love working with this one!

Wooden Spoon #154 - Cherry Wood with Shaped Handle.
Carved from a beautifully figured piece of 1& 3/4" thick cherry , this wooden spoon features a nice, slim handle for people who have trouble gripping something thicker.    The handle is strong enough to handle serious mixing though!  The overall length is about 12 & 3/8".   The bowl is about 4" long by just about 2.5" wide and features some amazing grain.   This spoon bowl was hollowed deeper than the ones listed above, so it doesn't have the extra weighted heft for heavy duty mixing - but if you are looking for a lighter weight spoon, this is perfect!  In fact, this one was Tom's favorite from the recent batch!    A very nice piece you will be proud to display and use!
