Nestled amidst the glacier carved mountains of Pennsylvania, we have been creating hand-carved wooden spoons for over 30 years. Our work is inspired by traditional American treenware with a contemporary design sense. We use local, regional, and salvaged hardwoods, always keeping in mind sustainable forestry practices. Many of our pieces are made from trees harvested from our 65 acre property.

People have always used woodenware for cooking. Consider our utensils as heirlooms that you can be proud to pass along to future generations. Our custom made furniture is inspired by the beauty and uniqueness of our Eastern forests. All of our work cherishes life through the act of preparing food and feeding loved ones.

Each piece is hand carved using traditional woodcarving tools such as gouges, mallet and drawknife and shaped with an intensive sanding process. The wood grain is raised several times with hot water and then sanded down with a three-part sanding process. After the last sanding , pieces are immersed in a mineral oil bath and then buffed with a protective, non-toxic beeswax finish.

Many of our customers have become our friends over the years and we have enjoyed hearing family stories including our unique work. We hope you will enjoy our work for years to come!
