  • 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:

        http://www.itascawoodproducts.com/

        and Joe Jewett at Copperhead Road Logging and Lumber

        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)

                    I would not use regular plywood but Baltic Birch is different. On Steve Garrisons Facebook page someone posted a shell with either Baltic Birch or something like Spectraply. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of tearing or splintering with either cutting or sanding.

                    Using solid...

                    Bruce took the “zipper”ff today. Yep, the stitches were zipper type. When we were packing up at the market Sunday, the coffee vendor asked if we wanted a taste of his chocolate whiskey coffee. We said no thanks. After driving to Annapolis in the truck today to get Elliott, Bruce said he was going...

                    I usually don’t use plywood, but I think it works beautifully with these patterns. On my to do list in January.

                    I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

                    And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
