Love my walking stick
I got my walking stick unfinished. And the more I sand it the more beautiful it becomes. Put coat of vanish and it's gorgeous. The product is as advertised. He even told me that the one I wanted had a crack in the handle as it dried. That's Mother Nature. I love the imperfection as most would call it, I call it character. Good instructions on how to install the tip lots of numbers and web sites to help you if you have questions about finishing your walking stick.
poor quality diamond willow
I purchased four sticks four making canes. I was able to use only one. Two of the sticks had no characteristics of diamond willow which is actually a disease that gives the wood the diamond and red hue qualities. These were only suited for the fireplace. What a JOKE
Exactly what I was looking for.
looking to try new material for making walking sticks. Usually used exotic lumber that I have to shave down before carving. This will mean I can spend more time carving and less shaving. I bought this myself
They are interesting looking sticks. Received 5 sticks ranging 1-1/4 ' to 2- 1/4" dia. and from 4' to 7-1/2 Very interesting sticks. Will be put to good use. Received lengths from 4'- 7-1/2' and dia. from 1-1/4" to 2-1/2".
no selectivity used
ancestors had 2 canes from "diamond willow" that were well figured (many little diamonds) and beautiful keepsakes from Nebraska, I did not inherit one of them, so ordered this one. Only 2-3 of the characteristic little diamonds, and two very large flaws from larger limbs. Combined made it totally unusable for a show off cane.
Was a little disappointed in the 2 willow sticks I purchased. One is to small in diameter to really use as a walking stick and the other has a very large rotten spot about halfway down. Neither will be able to be used the way I had hoped.
