Product Description

The grain is straight and pale white to light brown colour.  Easy to work, being very soft and light so is ideal for carving or whittling. 

 

Species in the Tilia genus are usually referred to as either Lime or Linden in Europe, while in North America it’s most commonly called Basswood.

 

Basswood is an ideal wood for many woodcarvers. Its soft, fine, even texture makes it easy to work with, while its pale, inconspicuous colour doesn’t detract from the carved patterns of the finished product (which also makes it easier to paint and colour).

Please note some pieces will be straight-edged & some may have bark.

"Great wood. Shame that every piece I ordered had a price written in black marker pen in the planed side, causing additional work in sanding to get it gone. "

"The wood was nice quality and fair price but I was very disappointed that every piece of wood had the cost written on it in permanent marker and on the good side. Was impossible to clean off as the ink had soaked too deep into the wood. "
