  • 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

    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
        http://www.joescarvingwood.com/

        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)

                    Here’s some pics from the market I’ve been doing. Steve’s skeleton was a big hit. I made them from popular and used the discoloration and cracks for highlights. I got requests for 4 more! Sales are good as well as orders for “matching” baskets. ...

                    UPDATE: I found a section of the vault with oven pulls and there is a horse one listed. I get the same invalid file message. Sadly those patterns were designed by Wood-N-Things who has since pasted away. Unless someone see's this discussion and has a copy of the pattern there is not much else we...

                    Does the smell ever go away? Drip dry?

                    Some patterns are there others give me the error message. So Scott is correct we need a bit more information as to which category where you tried to find it.

                    Dottyblue I moved your question to a different forum. When the website moved to a new platform it crashed. As a result many of the old patterns were lost. If you can be more specific to the one you are trying to access I will see if I can open it....
