  • Looking for cheap BASSWOOD?

    Hi,
    I recently obtained large amount of basswood. The basswood is air dried 1 year per thickness then kiln dried to a moisture content between 6-8%. All the basswood is perfectly clear, and there are NO knots, and NO defects of any kind! Bellow is how much the basswood costs. The measurements are in inches.
    1x1x12= .50
    2x2x12= $2
    2x3x12= $2.50
    4x4x12= $8
    4x6x12= $12
    Also I have a few two foot basswood blocks.
    4x4x24= $16
    4x6x24= $24
    There is no minnimun order and to save on shipping you may come pick the wood up. E-mail me at [email protected] if you would liek tp purchase wood. Thank you

    If I did my math correctly, that's roughly $6/bd ft. (on the pieces I checked). As I recall, I've been paying between $4 and $4.50/bd ft. (can't find my notebook amidst all the junk on my desk) from my regular suppliers.

          Yes the price ranges from $5-$6 per bourd foot. I'm selling a lot of wood locally so I guess I'l just stick with that. Is your wood high qualitiy northern basswood?

              It may or may not be cheap basswood but it sure is not a free advertising site.

                When buying wood, it is very important to consider Quality, Price, Availability, Services provided and Shipping costs.

                That makes a much more complex formula than price per board foot.

                        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...

                        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
