Well, I made a trip back to the landfill. The borough is always bulldozing the discarded brush and trees to allow room for dumping. I managed to find the tree(s) from which I made the spoons as well as definitive (almost) identification!

Not certain the classification of “Pussy WIllow” this is, apparently there are a bunch. Got a couple more pieces while I was there.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who offered suggestions. I really appreciate the help!

I didn’t know “Pussy Willow” grew that thick. Must be a different variety. Now you have to grow this to find out what it really is!

Are there woods that we should NOT make eating utensils from for toxic reasons?

Meilie- I think that allergies are more common to the woodworker than the wood user (customer). Here is a link to a list of various species and their toxicity-

This list deals mostly with the effects of working with the wood rather than touching/using a piece made from it.
