Cherry Eating Spoon ~ 'Rad Grain' ~ I
Cherry Eating Spoon - 'Rad Grain'
Hand carved with Axe & Knife
From Cherry Wood
Carved in South Devon, UK
Finished with Linseed Oil
A beautiful hand carved eating spoon.
Carved from a tangentially cleft piece of Cherry with beautiful grain pattern running down the handle
This cherry spoon was carved from a cherry tree which was planted by Tim Hutton the founder of the Wild Circle Retreat 25 years ago, on his beautiful small holding by the river camel on Bodmin moor.
The woodland he planted was a mixture of oak, chestnut and some quicker growing cherry trees which recently needed to be thinned out so as to create some light in the canopy for the slower growing chestnuts to come up
This spoon is designed to be cooked with and well used - don't be afraid to use it on a daily basis! The only thing to avoid is putting it in the dishwasher, or leaving it to soak in the washing up bowl.
I always make sure my spoons are bone dry before putting them away in the drawer.
To give the spoon a new lease of life from time to time you can add a coat of Tung oil, flax oil, walnut oil (careful of nut allergies) or linseed oil, but this is not essential.
