      Nice looking board, should make a great carving. Never saw curly Basswood before. Learn something new every day.

        might be hard to carve with the grains going all directions!

              I don't think woodknomb is going to do anything with it, he wants to sell it.

                  Seen a couple of pieces of curly basswood at WoodCrafters in Tusla a couple of months back but they were over priced on their basswood. Did pick up a nice piece of tupelo and butternut. Still over priced.
                  Safety first, then enjoy carving! Ken Caney, Ks

                    No actually I was wondering if there was a difference between the two? BUT LOL if you want I will sell it LOL. To tell you the truth between ebay and reselling to other companys. I dont have much time to do special request or sales. I ususally resell #2 carving stock or some that are shy of a even dimesion or that are not s4s , but closer to s2s or even rough. Saves me time and the others cash as well. I have think it would be kind of hard to carve with the directions of the grain and all. I thought it was kind of neat looking. If i had a 14' and about 14' long it wuld make a good guitar blank.

                              that is the order I had gotten onetime. We do get the wood that size believe me. 14' wide by 14' long.

                                Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
                                This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

                                I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
                                Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
