Default Diamond Willow Source

I just ordered a Diamond Willow walking stick to finish, so I could see this beautiful wood you Folks keep talking about! I found a site with lots of unfinished sticks, including,
Ocotillo
Aspen
Basswood
Cedar
Diamond Willow
Hickory
Saguaro
Sassafras
Yucca
The Company is TREELINE WOODCRAFT SPECIALISTS, search for that name or email them at bnish1@TREELINEUSA.COM
Their prices ranged from $10 to $15, and I never got anywhere NEAR A DRAGON ordering! They have them in cane and staff lengths. I also ordered a carving apron from them; their price was $5 less than anyone else I could find! Shpg wasn't bad either.
If I'm impressed with the staff, I plan on trying several of those listed above! I can't start my truck for $10 anymore, let alone drive to the woods, and then I'd be cutting down someone else's sapling!
Wade

Thumbs up Re: Diamond Willow Source

Wade I have ordered from Treeline before and find their prices very reasonable. I bought some basswood blanks that I am getting ready to carve on next. I have used some from them before and it has been good quality. Ron

MrYooper,
Wow! That Fellow has got some sticks! I'd like to go dig through the piles! Beautiful, and I think his prices look pretty good. He's taken care of the dragons so we don't have to! that should be worth a lot!

Hi_Ho,
Maybe Gene will jump in here and give us a link to his diamond willow supply; I'd sure like to see it!
Wade

Ok I already posted them pics.....But the root buld makes a handle if you got the time to look at the grain and figure it out. It leaves a marble look when sanded and sealed...Also I found out the Diamond like to crack one way or the other.

Just got home and see someone wanted to see the Diamond Willow site, so guess I can do that. Sorry I wasn't more prompt in responding. See if I can remember how to post the site so it is a clickable.


http://diamondwillowwood.tripod.com

If it doesn't work I will redo it. If I can be of any further help drop me a private note.

Gene

I brave the dragons and collect my own diamond willow but if I had to order it Gene would be the person I would contact. He is a fellow carver and stickmaker and knows his stuff. I also prefer to support small businesses over big corporations.

I was lucky enough to win one of his cane blanks and the cane I made from it is one of my favorite pieces in my personal collection.
