Handmade Wooden Spoons

Lady Oak Wood - Wooden Spoons

These spoons are handmade by ourselves and are crafted from various woods, all of which are suitable for their intended use. Small ones make good teaspoons or children’s spoons, the medium sized are ideal eating spoons and the larger ones make perfect cooking spoons.

There are two varieties of the larger cooking spoons; the painted and decorated styles are carved from straight timber, while the other type, which has a hook on the back, are carved from a crooked branch of the tree. We have been making the Crook Spoons for some years now and they are very strong because the grain follows the shape of the spoon, they also work incredibly well as cooking and serving spoons.

These are also available as commission items, please contact us for available woods and to discuss the style and intended use of the spoon.

We hand carve our bowls using traditional tools; axe, adze and gouges, we then treat them with Flax oil sourced from a farm in Sussex and finished off with a homemade wax polish made from Flax oil, Beeswax and essential oils. The wood we use is sourced from suitable pieces we find as part of our woodland management, or, occasionally, from the local area.

The bowls pictured are of our current stock and are available for immediate purchase. They are suitable for a variety of uses, as salad, fruit bowls and eating bowls, we even make the occasional dough bowl.  Each bowl is unique and will make a bold statement in any household.

Large round Beech wood bowl with handles

This large bowl is made from a piece of Beech sourced from nearby Scotney Castle here in Kent, the tree being felled as part of their woodland management scheme. This bowl measures 29cm diameter by 22cm. The spalting in this bowl adds wonderful lines and colours, but it has cracked in a couple of places, which is normal for Beech and, in the traditional way, we have stitched these areas to hold them securely in place and prevent further movement.

Painted birch bowl

This Birch wood bowl shows some amazing burr patterns on the inside. Burrs make bowls very difficult to hand finish due to the grain going in many directions but the effort is rewarded with some stunning designs. The outside of this bowl has been painted with gold and blue craft acrylic paint. The size is 26cm by 17cm by 6cm deep.

Shrink pots

These are an ancient way of making a pot by hollowing out a greenwood log to make a tube, then fitting a dry piece of wood for the base. The tube then shrinks as it dries thus holding the base securely in place. A lid can then be fitted to complete the pot.

These two pots are made from Birch for the tube with either Sweet Chestnut or Cherry bases, the lids are both made from Yew. They are very large and can be put to many uses; they would also make sympathetic urns for a loved ones remains. The largest measures 25cm high including handle, and the smallest 19cm high. The outside of each pot has been carved with a decorative design.
