CURRENT SHIPPING TIME, 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS...This purchase is for (1) Chestnut wood spoon blank (Finished chestnut spoon in the above images is not included in this purchase and is used for display/comparison in the photos).
READY TO SHIP.
I've had this lumber for a number of years and haven't really done any crafting with it. Turns out it is a beautiful wood for making wooden spoons. Golden light brown colors, with grain showing through nicely. The wood grain is tight and very nice to work with; machines and tools exceptionally well. It also finishes out very nicely, with an end result of a polished wood/sheen after mineral oil or beeswax is applied.
Layout lines (pencil/pen markings) sometimes may be left on the wood. The bowl is carved out as the pictures reveal, but can been carved deeper if desired. The blank profile (outside edges) are sometimes rough since they are cutout on a bandsaw.
Size: Overall length and width is 12 1/8 x 2 1/4 inches, almost full 1 inch thickness. Handle width 7/8 of an inch at its widest. Bowl dimensions: 1 7/8" wide by 2 7/8 length. Depth of bowl is slightly under 3/8"
PLEASE NOTE: NO CARVING INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE SHIPMENT.

I am remiss in reviewing Robert of Foodiebords. I have purchased three separate times from Robert, Each and Every one has been a pleasure! Everything I asked for he did and more. Really one of the nicest and outstanding sellers here on Etsy, His products are incredible. Exactly as described and shipped really fast. A pleasure to talk/type with. Will always buy from Robert. I uploaded a pic of a spoon using Roberts fine and beautifully done blanks. My hands are not as young as they used to be and Roberts blanks help me create beautiful spoons to leave to family members without having to whittle of a bulk of wood. I am fully capable of taking a 4" dia limb and hatcheting a spoon out of it, but I have found my hands hurt way to long after such intensive work, this is why I've been purchasing from Robert, really a great product.
