American basswood is a large and rapid-growing tree of eastern and central North America. The basswood tree frequently has two or more trunks and vigorously sprouts from stumps as well as seed. American basswood is an important timber tree, especially in the Great Lakes States. All basswood strips and sheet are 24 inches long and come in many different sizes, from 1/16 square up to 2 x 6 basswood planks.

Basswood is a soft, lightweight hardwood that is non toxic and has a mild clean smell when freshly cut.  Its heartwood ranges from a creamy white to a creamy brown.  Its sapwood is nearly white.  The wood has a fine and uniform texture.  Though it dulls cutting edges slightly, it is easy to work.  Keep your cutting tools sharp.  Because basswood is not durable, it should not be used outdoors.

FEATURES: Homogeneous grain structure makes Basswood ideal for carving as well as a variety of hobby, craft and miniature projects.
May be stained or painted to represent any wood type.
May be cut to desired length.
