Also called American linden, Basswood has been long sought after for it's clean appearance and easy workability. It is a favorite of carvers around the world and just happens to be a tree that literally grows in our backyards here in the South. We offer both FAS (Firsts and Seconds) Basswood, which is all but clear, and then a premium, all clear option for those carvers who wish to go above and beyond with their artwork. Aside from carving, other common uses include:
- Electric guitar bodies
- Veneer and plywood
- Wood pulp materials
Our Basswood has been locally sourced and dried down to 5% before being stored in our dry-shed under humidity control to ensure the highest quality material for your project. All our material is planed down to the sizes shown below.
