You can use oak (red, white and others), cherry, walnut, gringe, apple, maghogany, chechen, maple (burled, birds-eye, tiger and quilted), zebrawood, alder, boxwood and others. I think that Olivewood looks great. i believe that is what Sonoma uses for their spoons.
(I used birch for a vase once, finsished it with Danish oil and it has held up well.)
While you can use just about any wood to make utensils, I’d stay away from anything that is open-pored as it will be difficult to clean. There can be health concerns with some types of woods as well (not just exotics) so do some in-depth research on whatever your final choices are.
