Swedish Eating Spoon ~ Cherry
Swedish Eating Spoon
Hand carved with Axe & Knife
From Cherry Wood
Carved in South Devon, UK
Finished with Linseed Oil
A beautiful hand carved eating spoon with xl large bowl for extra shovel capacity. This designed is based on classic Swedish spoon shapes
The spoon has been carved from a radial piece of cherry, with beautiful heartwood / sapwood contrast
**Everything I carve is made individually, so the wood selection, grain and colours may be slightly different from the photo.**
Sustainably sourced from locally grown trees in South Devon, UK. The trees I carve almost always grew within a 20 mile radius from my workshop, meaning very little carbon footprint from tree to spoon. These spoons are hand carved with 3 hand tools: an axe, hook knife and straight knife from log to spoon.
Please allow a few days for me to carve your items. The current wait time on all orders is 7 working days. If you need them urgently, please drop me a message and I can prioritise your items.
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.
