Small apple wood ladle

This wooden ladle has been hand carved from apple wood. The apple tree was felled on a small farm south of Madison, WI. The branch this wooden spoon was crafted from grew in a shape that helped inform the final design of the spoon. The form of the ladle follows the fibres of the wood, which means this wooden utensil can be carved thinner and remain stronger.

This wood ladle has been shaped entirely by hand: with an axe and knives. This traditional method of woodworking is native to northern Europe, where I learned it from craftspeople in the UK and Sweden.  

The warm colour of the apple heartwood shines through in the bowl of this ladle. The small size of the ladle bowl makes it perfect for dipping into jars and containers with narrow openings. 

This handcrafted ladle is 13" long. The bowl of the wooden spoon is 1.875" wide and 2.5" long. 

This apple wood serving spoon has been sealed with food safe linseed oil. When it comes to cleaning the spoon, simply wash by hand in hot water with dish soap. 

Wooden bowl (and couscous) not included.
