Just wanted to share another oak scoop that I made recently. This wood comes from a giant and a very old tree. Particularly beautiful here is two layer structure and the crack.
oak wood tea pillow...although the wood is very old and heavily weathered, top surface could have been polished and looks great...shellac resin and tea seeds oil treated...I am very happy with this one

...in the process of testing another wood for the tea bridge. I thing that this one goes really good with this tea boat as for the color concern. I also like how the color match with the teapot's handle, really enjoy using this one made by Andrzej Bero. Hawthorn wood is used here, in love with this one. It is a hard wood and the grain is just fantastic. I have recently collected quite a lot of this wood as they cut down a tree in the near orchard and I was able to stock some branches from it. I am very happy about this. Beautiful tea boat is work of Mirka Randova.
Some pieces are up on KlasekTea. Thank you! http://www.darjeeling.cz/en/accessories/wooden-tea-utensils
