I have a large stock of Black Willow harvested from a wind-break in a muck field in north-central Indiana. I have sawn and dried several loads. Very light weight and really soft, easy to over-work. You can dent it with your finger nail. It has a very nice grain and finishes nice. Just not a good wood if the project is going to be bumped or used in a rough way. Very nice for a what-not shelf or a stand that won’t be abused.

-- Just another beautiful day in paradise.
