Default Re: Debarking Diamond Willow

spring or late fall the bark comes off quite easily, but spring is better. I made myself a shaving mule, (shaving horse) and a draw knife. A bench vise with an old cut up radiator hose over the jaws works to. I use the bench vise with this rubber hose to hold the stick for diamond cleaning and sanding. Been doing it this way for years.
I measured twice and it's still too short!

I read somewhere that they use a high pressure water pump. They say it blows the bark right off. Don't know just saying. Merle
