Wood clap board siding was (and still is) commonly used around the world to sheath the exterior of buildings. Mt. Albert has reproduced this material precisely for use on all types of building exteriors!
These clapboard siding basswood sheets are scribed with 0.045" wide boards and are ideal for scratchbuilding wood structures. These are 1/16" thick and easily cut with a knife or laser cutter.
The naturally fine grain of basswood makes it ideal for creating scale wood models. Even though this is technically a hardwood, it works easily with hand tools.
Mt. Albert scale sheet stock is produced from the highest quality basswood available. Cut to consistent dimensions, high tolerances this material is ideally suited for all types of scratch building projects.
Our method of cutting basswood produces clean, fuzz-free wood that is ready to use. We use the finest raw materials available, free of knots and discoloration.
