- here in Norway, I have a bunch of goat willow, (also known as **** willow). The heartwood is known to resist moisture very well, and has been used for fences in the past. Would that be a good material for a tripod? I like to use locally sourced materials.
Of course fur and spruce, we have that, birch as well. But the willow has some nice colour and play in it. Plus the water and rot resistant qualities.
PS: the other name for willow, is going to be censored I guess..
