Artificial limbs were made from willow and I have made many things from willow…Bob is right staining can be tricky, like what black cherry said…I hate it when people call any wood junk wood there is no junk wood it all has a purpose like us, the pic I have right here in the little box is weeping willow we call it in my area it has long long skinny fresh branches that hang down as kid would jump grab a handful and swing like Tarzan….is that the willow? My first projected listed on here is willow turned green, turned once, no warping no checking end grain needs a spit coat even then can get blotchy, the fuzz yeah it is but you can sand it
For a tool box is the question and I say why not and cherry is not all that hard bet they are close and Cherry breaks very easy in my opinion willow is tuff it might dent but won’t break as easy and what is wrong with dents?
Read about diamond willow walking sticks…are they hard? Soft and stringy? Not so much
