Willow abounds in northern Minnesota where I live. I have often found diamond willow within walking distance of my home. Many people drive by beautiful patches of willow every day, not realizing the amazing treasures they are passing by.
I harvest diamond willow, peel it, dry it, sand it, and varnish it to bring out the naturally stained wood and diamonds. This page is for people who want to learn more and share their knowledge about diamond willow. Willow can be fashioned into walking sticks, canes, vases, lamp bases, candle holders, and more. Small willow branches can be weaved into baskets, birdfeeders, and other containers, though that’s not the emphasis on this site.
If you are interested in purchasing willow in a finished or unfinished form, visit my Etsy shop: Tom’s Willow Craft on Etsy
