Caring for your Wooden Utensils
- Wash them by hand in warm soapy water.
- Do not put them in the dishwasher: the high heat and humidity can cause the wood to crack
- Never let them soak in water for long periods as they will absorb water and may crack when they dry.
Maintenance: To keep your wooden utensils looking great and to ensure their long life and durability, I recommend that you periodically maintain them. When the wood looks dry, apply one of these: a food grade mineral oil, hemp oil, walnut oil, pure tung oil, linseed oil, flax oil, coconut oil, a commercial salad bowl finish, or even olive oil. Before applying, make sure the wood is completely dry. If the wood feels a bit rough, rub it first with fine sandpaper (220 or 320 grit works well), fine steel wool or a dry plastic scrubbing pad till smooth. Then apply oil with a rag or your fingers (just wet it; you don’t need much), and let it soak in for a few minutes. Wipe of excess oil with a rag, and let it dry overnight. Buff it with a rag the next day. Long live your wooden Utensils!

I bought a spoon and a spatula from you at Ness Fest. To say I am delighted with them is a gross understatement. I show them to everyone and use them always. Thank you so much, i will certainly be a repeat customer.
Thank you for your kind words. You are very welcome.
Hello Carson. We have one of your small spoons which we use as our coffee measure. The one we have is 4.5 inches long and we would like to get another one.
I will be in the Winnipeg Signatures show this weekend and will have small spoons there

I bought one of your wooden spoons at the 2019 One of a Kind show in Toronto, and I absolutely love it. Any chance you’ll be at another show in Toronto in 2022?
