Handmade wooden tableware
If you are looking to expand the locally-sourced and made-to-order ethos of your food into the full customer experience, using wooden tableware designed around your menu will enhance service. Wood is especially useful when using hand-made ceramic plates, where textured surfaces can be less pleasing with metal spoons and spreaders.
I am open to chef’s ideas and can make samples to order. Here are a few handmade wooden products I have designed to date:
- Service spoon (single portion)
- Soup spoon
- Spreader (knife)
- Mini dessert spoon
- Dessert spoon
- Dessert cup
- Expresso cup
- Service tray

Using wood in service
Wood is very resilient to wear if looked after correctly. I use the most appropriate wood species, which are densely-grained and naturally antibacterial. All items designed to be used with food are finished to a high polish, then carefully sealed. Washed in soapy water and dried after service, they will provide a long service life. An occasional wipe in a food-safe oil such as linseed or walnut will enhance the finish. Any breakages in the first year are replaced for free.
