Wooden Cutting Boards and Spoons from Two Tree Studios

May 8, 2018

Allison Samuels, founder of Two Tree Studios woodworking and furniture atelier in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, majored in fiber arts before finding her calling in wood. After art school, she traveled up and down the East Coast and in her wanders decided that cabinetry and wood carving would be her future. She returned to New York, where she grew up “surrounded by lush forests and rock-filled rivers,” which later inspired her to create “simple, nature-based design, with a strong interest in preserving natural resources,” she says.

Two Tree makes wood cutting boards, kitchen utensils, and shelving, plus experimental and custom cabinetry and furniture. We’re fond of her small objects, which are carved and sanded by hand and finished with eco-friendly, food-safe waxes and oils (bonus points: Two Tree’s cutting boards and utensils are stocked, so they’ll ship within two to four business days).

In the FAQ section of the company’s website, Two Tree poses the question: “Will my board look just like the picture?” The answer: “Nope, it won’t! That’s the beauty of working with a natural material.” Each piece of lumber has its own color and grain pattern, and the hand-carving process ensures that each product is unique.

Different woods and sizes are available; the handle on these walnut versions is about 16 inches long with a spatula head about 4 to 5 inches long and 3 inches wide; $80.
The Long-Stemmed Double Teaspoon is perfect as a kitchen tasting spoon, to sample soups and sauces before adjusting to taste. The handle is about  inches to  inches long, with a spoon (roughly teaspoon-sized) at each end. It&#8
