Description

Spalted wild cherry

This scoop is made from sustainable materials that were found, reclaimed, or grown ourselves near to where we live in the southwest of England. We don’t buy exotic woods from far-flung places, we use the wood that we can harvest and regrow ourselves in healthy, highly diverse, and well-functioning local ecosystems.

Scoop length
4.5 cm

Scoop width
3 cm

Scoop depth
1 cm

Functional and simple design mixed with ancient hand carving techniques allow this scoop to be both lightweight and incredibly strong at the same time. Over ten years in design has given Nick, our maker, a strong belief in always allowing the wood to speak for itself.

With each piece he examines and follows the grain as he works, keeping the unique bends and burls rather than tossing them out like most makers would. This means you receive a stronger and more beautiful item than you would from someone who just carves from straight-grained blanks. It also means that every piece is entirely unique, so what you see in the photo is exactly what you will receive in the mail.

Shipping Policy

All orders are sent via Registered Post by AnPost (tracked/signed for). This way we can ensure that your package arrives to you safely and offer you refunds/exchanges if your items are lost or damaged on their way to you.


100% recycled, recyclable, and home compostable packaging

We believe that plastic and fossil fuels are ruining our global environment, so we are doing everything we can to reduce our impact. We ship our items in 100% recycled padded paper mailers that can be either reused, home composted, or 100% recycled again. We realize that fossil fuel use is necessary (at the moment) for an online business like ours to ship our products to our customers, but we are working hard to find shipping companies that are also dedicated to reducing their impact on the environment, and also hope to become a 100% local business, to sell only to customers within a certain distance from where we live so that we don’t have to rely on shipping companies, cars, or aircraft to get our work to where it needs to go.
