I have not used it but I have looked into it a lot because I have 4 HUGE willow trees on my property.

One of the common uses for willow is artificial limbs for what ever thats worth.. Its a light almost white colored wood and I am sure its very usable for many woodworking projects. I would assume its a lot like Basswood in that it carves easy and yet still considered a hardwood.

One of my willow trees in my front yard is looking sad and I have debated having it milled.
