  • basswood

    At Wal-Mart I bought a slab of basswood about 5/8"thickness. It is a hard or soft wood. What size and kind of blade would be best to cut it.

    It's very soft even-grained wood - easy to cut. I just cut a fretwork design out of one of those slabs using a FD-SR #1 blade and it cut like butter...

      Basswood is one of the softest, lightest woods available. It is often used by modelers due to its light weight and by carvers since cuts so easily.

      I would say you can use just about any blade you want, but smaller, less aggressive blades will give you more control.
