Product Description

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 makess 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."

"I was disappointed when this arrived. I ordered the smaller and larger pieces of basswood, however they did not arrive with bark still on the edge as is shown in the picture and the edges are just thought sawn. The worst part was that each piece had the price written on in black marker and some of the sides had coloured marks on. Which makes it pretty unusable for me. A complete waste of money."
