  • 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.

            Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
            And on each cloud touching the body ?

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
