A serving spoon/ladle carved from a bent laburnum log, measuring approx. 20cm in length and featuring a relief carved snake around the handle. Finished with walnut oil and beeswax.

The grain in the wood is outrageously gorgeous, and the colour inspired me to try another of my snake spoons as a felt it would naturally compliment the skin of a snake. This piece was a real challenge to the limitation of my knife, and therefore fun and educational to carve as well as very satisfying to finally finish. 

Worth noting is that laburnum contains cytisine, which is toxic if consumed in  large amounts. However, this piece has been carefully dried, treated and sealed with polymerised walnut oil for safe use. Just please don't eat the spoon!

Care for your woodeware:
Do not put in the dishwasher! Wash with warm soapy water, avoid soaking and dry soon after.
Once or twice a year you can oil with walnut, linseed, foodsafe mineral oil or something similar.
With regular use the woodenware will form a patina. This adds to both the strength and character of the utensil.
