Way back when, lemonwood (not to be confused with wood from the fruit tree) was traditionally used for crafting archery bows and fishing rods. With a history like that, it’s no wonder that the wood has found its way into our kitchen, where the sturdiest tools are the best tools. These hand carved spoons (in sets of 2) are made special with a tapered, pointed end. Practical enough for everyday stovetop stirring, but unique enough to peek out of a serving bowl full of a grainy salad. Choose from 2 lengths: 12” long or 16” long.
Because they’re lovingly hand carved (by a friend of Farmhouse Pottery’s in Morocco!) each spoon will vary slightly in shape.

Size: Set of 2 spoons; Spoon sets are available in 12” L or 16” L; Both sizes have a 4” L spoon bowl
Hand wash only. Do not soak in water, as the wood could warp. Once a month or so, apply a little mineral oil to the spoon using a soft cloth. Do not use cooking oils such as olive or vegetable oil. If your spoon starts to feel rough or feathery, use a fine-grit sandpaper to smooth them. You can also sand out any stains or burn marks.
