These handy plain basswood sheets from Mt. Albert Scale Lumber have many uses! Great for floors, roofs or interior walls.
Thinner sizes are easily cut with a knife, thicker sizes, such as 1/4" are best cut with a saw. All sizes are ideally suited for laser cutting.
Basswoods naturally fine grain makes it ideal for hand carving as well. 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, with a tolerance of +/- .003" (less than the thickness of a sheet of paper) 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.
These .250" x 4" (6.4mm x 101.6mm) wide sheets are sold in 12" (305 mm) lengths.
