  • Basswood

    Hi all. I lost my local source for basswood. Does anyone know of a good source on the web? I found a few on a google search but would like your opinion before I buy from an unknown source. Thanks
    Cheers

    Re: Basswood

    Where are you located Ric? Maybe someone nearby, or at least, in the same state has a source.

      Ric,
      It's hard to beat Slim's Woodshed in Minnesota. There's another wood supplier up that way and they ship too. I don't have their address right this minute but will look for it today and try to send it tonight. Maybe someone else will have it before then.

      The quality of their wood is the best. They come to Missouri once or twice a year to a show and we can replenish our 'stash' without shipping.

        Hi Ric,

        Two other good suppliers of basswood are:

        Hope these help you.

          Ric,
          OK I found the info on the wood suppliers I have used.
          Heinecke Wood Products
          Dale & Tim Heinecke
          76 - 27 1/2 Avenue
          Cumberland, WI 54829
          (715) 822-8642

          and Slim's Woodshed
          Slim Maroushek
          P O Box 594
          Harmony MN 55930
          (507) 886-3114 or [email protected]

          Both have a variety of wood and cutouts (Heinecke's has roughouts too) and mostly EXCELLENT basswood. With Heinecke's the shipping goes down proportionately with the size of the order.

          Hope this helps.

                I get my basswood from Don Wedl, he is a small operator and has his own mill, sometimes is a little slow in getting the wood out, other times fast, depends on his orders, but his prices are very good! Give him a try and tell him I sent you! (no I don't get a kickback! I just promised I would help get his name around with other carvers)

                    Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                    Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

                    I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                    Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
