Re: If it's Cherry laurel its toxic

Keith,

Research in toxicity proved interesting.

Here's what AAW Advisor Hockenbery says about Cherry Laurel: "I have turned 15-20 natural edge bowls from cherry laurel and maybe 1 or 2 small twice turned bowls. And have seen at least 50 pieces turned from it by other turners."

See ref: http://www.aawforum.org/community/index.php?threads/cherry-laurel.12563/

Just like it is in cherry, plum and peach trees, the hydrogen cyanide in Cherry Laurel appears to be concentrated in the leaves, twigs and seed pits.
