The Tupelo 6 x 8 x 18 works great for people who like to hand or power carve or even cabinet making. The Tupelo is a lighter wood and considered one of the best soft wood to carve. You can carve it into the desired shape without creating a fuzz while carving.
While we all look for tupelo carving blanks, and commonly refer to the wood as just Tupelo. Tupelo is actually from the Tupelo gum tree and can be found in the swamps of the southern and eastern United States.
Our Tupelo wood carving blocks are cut from the bell of the tree and then dried to create some of the finest, lightest Tupelo available.
This is a Nominal thickness. We will try to get the thickness of the Tupelo as close to the listed thickness as possible but please allow +/- 1/4".
