Wooden kitchen accessories make cooking more enjoyable
The sumptuous colors of the modern shaped knife block along with the dramatic handles make this Fusionwood set a work of art when it comes to wooden kitchen accessories. Designed by Corey Milligan of New West Knifeworks, select hardwood veneers are impregnated with dyes and phenolic resins. They are finished with a high-carbon stainless tool steel blade from America’s oldest cutlery manufacturer, Lamson and Goodnow Company. These kitchen tools are built to last a lifetime.
Exotic zebrawood is used to create cutting boards at Carolina Wood Designs. Owner Michael Osucha says end grain construction allows knives to stay sharpened longer. It even allows self healing. As with all wooden kitchen accessories, sealing occasionally with oil protect the pieces and cleaning is easy with a little mild detergent and water.
As a young man, Jonathan Simons was working as an apprentice furniture maker when he forgot to put a spoon in his lunch sack, so he whittled one from a single piece of wood. Years later, when faced with unemployment and weather too cold for glue to dry properly, Jonathan remembered the spoon and started experimenting in his workshop and kitchen. He designed warm cherry wood utensils from single pieces of wood and Jonathan’s Wild Cherry Spoons was born. The Lazy Spool collection has increased to include spatulas, tongs, spreaders and more. Each item includes a cut-out for resting on the edge of pots. While function is certainly the most important consideration before purchasing, it’s ultimately the feeling each item brings forth that leads to enjoyment.
