Handcrafted, custom wooden kitchen utensils. Wooden spoons, measuring cups, drinking cups, and charcuterie boards, all made in Poland, Maine. You must bear in mind that these are newly carved, sanded, and finished, solid wood utensils. They have not been seasoned through use like the ones you may currently have. The first few times you use them, they will get a fuzzy feel to them, this is a natural part of the seasoning process which goes away the more you use them. Hand wash only, with regular dish soap, and dry with a cloth or paper towel right away. Do not let them soak or sit in the sink for an extended period. The finish I use is an all natural and food safe raw linseed (flaxseed) oil, mixed with locally harvested raw beeswax. If the piece will be used daily or on a somewhat regular basis, I recommend you apply a food safe oil monthly or at least every couple of months, this will keep the wood conditioned and maintain a bright finish. Any butcher block conditioner or oil will work as well. If for any reason, the piece feels overly rough or fuzzy, a light sanding with a 600-800 grit sandpaper followed by butcher block conditioner/oil will make them like new again. If you follow these instructions, your utensils will serve you well for many years to come.
