Basswood (Tilia americana) is fine, straight grain material with an even texture and little contrast between early and late wood. Creamy white in color and lighter in weight than the related European Lime. Easy to work, being very soft and light. Perhaps one of the most suitable wood species for hand carving. Common uses of basswood include carvings, lumber, musical instruments (electric guitar bodies), veneer, plywood, and wood pulp and fiber products.

  • Fairly soft, preferred wood for carving
  • Creamy white color
  • Glues and finishes well

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

    Not what I am looking for!

    I use both the basswood and white/clear pine in making plank on frame wood ship models. The white pine I received from my first Woodcraft order was superiod (great wood to work with). My second order contained heavily grained pine, which is not useful in model buidling. This recent order also contained heavy grained pine. When I order I have no option to only order the white/clear pine. It seems I get what's in stock. This is not workable. I need to find a reliable source of white pine where I know I will receive white pine in each order.
