Our Basswood 3 x 8 x 12 Carving Blanks are an excellent choice for any carving project!
Carve in the round with a 3" thick basswood blank. Our basswood comes from Northern Wisconsin where it is soft and whiter than most. Try a piece of Northern Wisconsin 3" Basswood that is soft, white and easier to carve than other basswood. This stock comes to us from the mill known as 8/4 basswood. We then mill it down and cut it to dimension.
We try to maintain a full 3" thick, but thickness can vary up to 1/8" depending on the shrinkage from the drying process. Our basswood is light and super soft making it perfect for hand carving.
Use the lightness of the Basswood and the the light color to your advantage. Basswood stains easily and is an excellent choice for making projects that require a colored stain.
