  • Source for Butternut

    HI all!

    I'm new to the list, but have carved for several years. My favorite is chip carving crosses -- I've used a lot of butternut (nominally 1'), but am having a hard time finding butternut in anymore. Does anyone know of a source for butternut that will ship to Denver? Or does anyone have a suggestion for alternate wood (I really like the depth / richness of butternut, and the figure).

    Thanks!

          Thanks for the tips! I will check out Slim's Woodshed, and Dale H in WI. I've heard of catalpa, but never carved it. I think I will find some, and give it a try. I've used mahogany, but just wasn't happy with the 'depth' and grain. Thanks again, all!

            Before I order a bunch of it xxx how does catalpa carve with hand tools? Saw some picture of catalpa carvings and like the looks of the wood, but have never touched a piece.

                For northern grown butternut, try Tuckaway Timber at:
