For several years I had been keeping an eye on a hickory tree almost completely covered with galls, or small burl-like growths, that was growing on a roadside near my friend's home. My friend knew I was interested and eventually called to say it had been taken down and hauled away. We tracked down the tree service company and asked the owner if he would cut off some pieces I felt particularly promising. Many of the galls turned out to be useless but I was able to make a few decorative spoons including this one.
