A very interesting cane. The willow has a lot of personality!

I said it before, I wish I could just find some diamond willow.
Maybe I’ll just have to see if you can find some for me and find a way to send it to me….HA HA!
Great work again and I look forward to seeing some more of your finds!

It would not suprise me if you found diamond willow growing near you . Just check to see if ’ Bebbs willow ’ grows in your area . If it does grow near by I can decribe what you need to look for and where to look .
There is a chap in Alberta that sells over the net but I would think that the cost of shipping must be quite high . But should anyone go this route I would suggest if possible get sticks that have the bark on , to allow you to start shaping the wood and w/ the bark on you are able to use a heat gun to straighten them aswell . -gary

Thanks Gary, I`ll check out about the ‘Bebbs Willow’ and may have to ask you for the help. I have some sticks
Drying at a my dads house in Kentucky. (No Willow though) I just recently started getting into stick making,
So I am just really starting to get my hands wet, I love the diamond willow.
My dad has a place in eastern KY with about 21acres, mostly woods and creecks and such.
He has a few friends that make sticks and they use alot of twisted sticks but when I ask about Willow they say….It don`t grow no where round here.
I asked them about Ohio and I get the same answer, It`s probably right under my nose and I do not not know what to look for, I`ll check in and get back with you. Thanks for the info and help.
