I got this as he get for my brother-in-law who has to wait for the wood he gets for free to dry out. This has been a life saver for this Winter time for him. He absolutely loves it! Thank you!

Great deal, lots, and variety!
My son is enjoying all the wood he has to whittle, and it's been perfect for his beginner skills. We bought two boxes to eliminate shipping, so he has a lot to work with and a variety of sizes. A great deal I couldn't find anywhere else!

basswood assortment
As a beginning wood carver, I think this basswood is great because of it's straight grain and no knots. It is soft enough to cut without any splintering.

I am very happy with this. Nice wood and it came really fast. I purchased other basswood the same day from another outfit (that starts with an A... and got about 1/3 as much wood and too small to work with. Rockler is my provider from now on.

If you are getting into carving, for me power carving, your basically practicing for a long time before you do anything any good. You're not going to go wrong with this. You can feel free to screw up and start again, there's more than enough wood.

My Dad got into woodcarving more after my Mom passed away to help keep his mind busy. I chose this product because he has had a hard time finding Basswood where he lives and I thought this would be a great addition to his Christmas gift. Gives him a variety to choose from.

Jessika Laube E on Dec 13, 2019
So worth the money I ordered more at this price; just one large blank of bass wood would be more than half the cost of this whole box. Carving and chip carving so lots to choose from in these boxes!

Is the wood treated? I'm looking for wood that would be safe to make a toy for a two year old child.
Matt C on Nov 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: this box of basswood is not treated! The box has great selections of various sizes. Most of the pieces are fairly smooth, but is is all natural, nothing treated. Will most likely purchase another box in the near future. I just started doing some wood carving. This wood would definitely be okay for toy making.
I need 4"×14" and30" long
Danny J on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my assortment, none were that big. Nothing approaching 14" or 30",all much smaller.
Are these blocks faced on 4 sides?
Deborah B on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There was a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Some were S4S, but there were a few with bark left on one surface. I guess it's like a box of chocolates..........

However, it does give a lot of material to work with. Let your creativity out!
How many pieces come in the box?
Garrett on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought this a couple of years ago. I am under the impression that each box is different, but the product photo is pretty accurate to what I received. The wood is good quality. I'd have preferred some larger cuts.
Is the wood dried?
Tj M on Jan 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is and easy to work with. I have been using it for years and have been very satisfied, especially with the various sizes as well as the price.
Enjoy
Is this northern or southern basswood? Where is the source?
Aiden V on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our Basswood is northern
My husband has ordered this 20 lb. random pieces of basswood several times. The last box he got had an abundance of small pieces and a lot of 2 1/2Inches by 12 inches. Can they put a better mixture of sizes?
Andra D on Sep 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are random, so I guess you should expect some variance in the randomness.
I am new to turning wood, or using a lathe, my friend has one and he hardwood is good for turning (he lives in a different state). Has anyone tried this with a lathe, if so how did this work out?
Jackie S on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This type of wood is not meant for Lathe work, It's used for wood carving. You could use it on the lathe But your tools will have to be extremely sharp And even there you will probably have a lot of tear-out Because of how soft it is.
