Basswood Grab box contains approximately 10 lbs. (5-1/2+ bd. ft.) of various sized pieces of (Tilia americana).

.

  • A carver's delight
  • 1-1/4" minimal thickness
  • Cuts easily and cleanly with and against the grain
  • Preferred by master carvers and perfect for beginners
  • Take advantage of this great value on quality carving stock


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Articles:

  • Wood for Carvers - There are many wood species that make for a good carving project, but some are more difficult to work than others.
  • Relief Carve a Whimsical House - I love to carve whimsical scenes in wood, but hate the time it takes to prepare a relief carving for the detail stage using traditional methods.
  • Bandsawing Intricate Shapes In Thin Stock - Backing up your stock with a piece of plywood adds a great deal of control to the process.

    Comments about Basswood Grab Box :

    The wood came really fast and was pretty much exactly like the picture, clean and straight cut basswood. It had many varying lengths and widths. Except the thickest they got were 2", I was hoping i'd get at least a couple 4" thick ones cause i cant do a whole lot with such thin wood.

    Comments about Basswood Grab Box :

    All the Basswood Blocks in the grab bag were of good size, and thickness. A couple were bigger then I thought they would be. [...] The best part they were of good working size and the grain of the wood was for the most part all going the same way, with no splits or cracks
