Woodworking Experience:
Very impressed!
After reading some of the 1 star reviews, I was hesitant to order this. Boy, was I surprised! First with the speed of delivery. It said 7-10 days, but I ordered late on Sunday and the box arrived by mid afternoon Friday. Second, I was surprised by the size of the pieces. I was expecting a lot of 1x1 inch stock. The smallest piece was 1.5x1.5x6 inches. A little less than half of the pieces were 1x6 of varying length. The rest were all at least 2 in thick. The largest piece was over 2x6x10 inches! Now, ONE of the medium size pieces has a knot in it, but nothing a bandsaw won’t work out to make a couple of smaller pieces. I have not tried carving with any of the pieces yet, but based on my initial impression l will order more boxes for sure!

Woodworking Experience:
Great Assortment
I was skeptical about what would be in this box. Thought it would be some small cutoffs that would be difficult to work with for a beginner whittler but intermediate wood crafter. boy was i surprised when i opened the box and found ALL quality pieces that can be cut down if need be and some that are perfect for larger items....when i run out of this box, i will definitely purchase this item again. Very Happy with this product.

Awesome assortment!
This assortment of wood was well worth the $$. Nice quality wood! If you went into a craft store and purchased a lot of these chunks as single pieces, they would be at least 5-10$ a chunk.

You'll not find a better buy anywhere. I've ordered from others, but this 20 pound box is the best. I've ordered three boxes of this quality basswood, and I'm certain I'll order another, and another, and ..... Well, I think you get the picture. You'll not find a better purchase anywhere. Did I say that twice? Must be true! And it is. The price is right, and the product is great. Don't miss out on this. And shipping is fast also. It's your call. So my advice is, make the call.

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.
Is this northern or southern basswood? Where is the source?
Aiden V on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our Basswood is northern
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.
