Learn To Build a Heritage Spoon Rack


People love the opportunity to show off their hard-won possessions. That's probably one reason why spoon racks have been popular for hundreds of years. The original rack held a collection of Canadian-made pewter spoons and included a drawer for broken utensils until they could be fixed by a traveling repairman. While most 19th-century racks were similar to this 1845 design from Lanark County in Ontario, the scrollwork is more complex than on others. It may have been made for a more elaborate home or displayed in a church. The builder clearly worked carefully at cutting the wavy scrolls precisely, without a power tool in sight.

The original spoon rack was made from wavy birch, which is plentiful in Central Canada, but harder to find on the West Coast where I live. Instead, I chose figured maple. It has a similar color and appearance, but it's easier to find.

You may be thinking that this rack is the ideal piece to hold your collection of small souvenir spoons; however, the original was made for regular-size spoons. To adjust this project for smaller spoons, tweak the size of the cutouts by experimenting with scrap first.
