This Ash wood set of utensils has been a fairly long term project for one reason or another, mainly because I've not been carving continuously, having been busy with other jobs. Another important reason is that this is the first edition of a kitchen utensil set I will continue to make in varying forms and from different woods, so starting on the right foot has been important and taken many hours of thought and design.adle.
Consisting of five pieces: a rack that holds a ladle, mixing spoon, spatula and fish slice (frying spatula), this utensil set is the perfect kitchen starter, which you can of course add to later with various spoons and salad sets. It may even be the ideal wedding present.
Based on the principle that when in the kitchen, convenience and availability are everything, this set has been made for hanging above or near the stove where each utensil is a moment away from use.
It contains the four most commonly used utensils in my own kitchen and I am confident they will serve you well. The rack which holds them has been fashioned with ease of use in mind: the straight hand carved Hazel wood dowels have smooth notches in them which are easily found by the Lime (Bass) bark cord loops of each utensil. I chose not to make annoying hooks which impede their removal or replacement. It comes drilled for mounting on the wall with screws and concrete inserts (Rawl Plugs).
Who are they for?
