spruce wood

All strips are 36 inches long and come in many different sizes, from 1/32 x 1/8 up to 3/8 square.

FEATURES:Spruce is a light, tough wood with a high strength-to-weight ratio. Used in full-sized aircraft in the past, it is now in demand by expert model-builders. Slightly rough in texture, it has high glue adhesion for strong joints. Best results are obtained by using the white type glues, as the faster model cements do not get a chance to penetrate Spruce before they dry. A little pressure is a good thing, too. Spruce, though twice as heavy as balsa, is ten times stronger. Therefore, smaller sizes can be used and still have a light model.
