Wayne "Fu" Smallwood shaves the bark off a dimond willow branch next to his collection of shaved devil's club walking sticks Sunday at Marine Park. Smallwood strips the bark off, sands, coats the sticks with polyurethane and adds a rubber cap to the bottom to make the walking sticks. He collects the devil's club locally and makes use of the roots, stocks and bark. A friend brings him the dimond willow from Canada. The walking sticks sell for $25 to $75 with larger, unique pieces going for as high as $300.
