  • 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?

                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 often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                        John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                        Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                        I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                        This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                        I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                        Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                        How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
