Diamond Willow for another Roorkee

I got a package in the mail recently from my dad.  In it was some diamond willow (likely Salix bebbiana) for another Roorkee chair.  This could likely be some of the only diamond willow in Europe!

Wait until you see what I do with it.  Of course, after I get a couple planned projects done.

Diamond willow in Germany!


  1. That piece looks incredible. Perhaps it will be an "invasive species" in Germany

    1. It does look great. According to Wikipedia, the diamonds are caused by a fungus, and creates diamonds in four or five different species of willow.

      Thanks for the comment, Jeremy!

  2. That looks especially beautiful in this picture. Is it one of the ones Dad finished?
