Have seen several posts on the site regarding diamond willow. My wife and I have become avid diamond willow searchers/gatherers/crafters in the last couple years. One of our very first projects was a diamond willow cane. Then numerous other DW projects. Now we’re gathering/peeling/rough finishing larger pieces to be used for a bed project. Have seen several beds on the web and they are simply breathtaking.

Below are some pics of our ever growing DW collection. This is not all, it’s stacked in every corner and hanging in the rafters:

Here’s a couple before and after peeling shots:

Here’s our first cane:

And our first walking stick or staff:

And last but not least, some little trinkets. We think it’s really neat how you get the 2-tone look because the DW has a cream colored outer wood with a beautiful reddish core wood.
