Twisted willow offcuts

Post by magicman »

Good Afternoon

I've cut a lot of branches off my twisted willow, and wondered what to do with them.
Some I will use to make rustic trellis and fencing, but I was wondering if any one had any other ideas, to put them to use.
They range from 1/2 to 6 inches thick and 4 to 8 ft in length.

I know people who use branches with interesting twists and curls to make epic flower arrangements.

I genuinely had no idea what I'd find when I clicked on this topic.

People pay big bucks to put those in glass vases in their living rooms/on tables and stuff. Start an etsy store and sell them online for a ridiculous price. Be sure to use "artisanal" somewhere in the description!

I'm not googleling that.

Thanks for the ideas and funnies, I'm sure I will put most of it to good use, over the next few months.
