  • large carving blocks

    Can someone help me locate where I can buy fairly large blocks of carving wood (ex: 24' or more long, 4' wide etc). I'm wanting to carve out a Navy ship. Email me .

      You might check the Itascawoodproducts.com site for blocks. I see that they list baswood blocks up to 4x8x24 on their page. I have ordered from them with good results. Dick

        Hi Jimmy,

        You might give CrossCut Hardwoods a call. There Number is 503-224-9663. They are located in Portland, Or. where I live. I recently had an opportunity to go in and they have a good selection of woods of all kinds.

        They have a web site www.emersonhardwood.com

        I was looking for Bass wood to carve since my wife got me a few carving tools and a carving basics book for X-mas. They had planks I think 3 inches thick and some 4-5 inches thick. they sell by the board foot and will cut to length as long as the remaining piece is 6 foot long or longer...I found a piece of split bass wood in their waste bin that was suitable for what I needed and they sold it to me for a buck....normally they sell bass wood at I think $4.50/board foot, so give them a call or check their web site.

          When you're buying mail order wood, the shipping is a significant part of the price, so I would suggest you try to select a source as close to your area as possible.
