Ambrosia maple small scoop
The discoloration of this wood is brought on by the ambrosia beetle as it moves through the maple leaving what it cannot digest and secreting saliva into the wood. This creates a fungal pattern, thus turning the wood the blue color you see and it naturally stays that way forever! Cool, huh?! This beautiful long handled spoon is a classic for me that I forever love to make. Finished with a mixture of local bees wax from Wild Mountain Bees and food grade mineral oil.
