    Re: diamond wood

    Check out 'diamond willow' on the web, there is a whole swack of info. related to carving walking sticks using willow including material sources. We have alot of it here in Alberta and I've worked with it quite a bit, it's beautiful wood when finished and no two pieces are alike.

        You can get diamond willow on this website:
        http://members.tripod.com/~woodsource/index.html
        Just email him with any preferences you have (like size, a lot or few diamonds, bark or no bark, fresh cut or already dry, etc.) Don will get right back to you. I think his prices start at around $5. for a stick.
