In order to find a good quality wooden spoon, I knew I had to find one that was made by hand. My search took me to Etsy. While there, I found a shop that makes best quality of wooden cooking utensils I have ever seen--Kitchen Carvings on Etsy.
|Two coffee scoops in their beginning stages|
Wooden spoons are not the only kitchen and dining utensils that Kitchen Carvings creates. You will find an assortment of spatulas, saute tools, salad and pasta servers, and another type of spoon--a coffee scoop (which is almost a must item in each and every kitchen). Many of his wooden utensils are antique reproductions. Robert also makes bookmarks from wood. They are truly a delight for the bookworm in your life.
Robert puts a lot of care into the making of his wooden utensils. Here is how he finishes them:
The utensils are "pre-washed" so to speak. During the final sanding the grain is raised twice with hot water and then the loose fiber ends are sanded off with a finer grit of sandpaper so that in use the spoon will not get rough. Then it is soaked in a bath of melted beeswax and mineral oil at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
