A truckload of willow wood was used in the Industrial Arts program in the school where I taught. It was purchased because the cost per board foot was low. Additionally, because it is soft it was easy for students to cut, shape, sand, etc. However that softness makes it relatively poor for furniture because it dents and is marred so easily. Once it’s dried and planed it’s relatively stable. It has both the advantage AND disadvantage of being “light” or low in density. I’d put it in the category of white pine, pondersoa pine, alder, and poplar.
