Basswood and Wood Products - Wood for Carving, Pyrography, Woodburning and Other Crafts

Fine wood plaques, rounds, napkin holders, boxes and other wood products for pyrography, relief carving and other crafts

 

I remember when I first started woodburning I could not find good quality wood for burning and I was  not happy with the quality of the wood products found in most craft stores.

Al started making wood blanks for me. I am now offering them to our customers.

About the wood products I carry

Russian Birch plywood is manufactured with more ply's than domestic plywood. It has a more uniform color that is easy to burn and produces nice clean, crisp detail.

Italian Poplar plywood is a plywood imported from Italy. It is normally cream colored with a very fine grain. It is generally used for woodburning, airplane kits and scroll saw projects. I will no longer be stocking this because the quality of the Italian poplar that is being imported into this country now has deteriorated to the point that it is not very good for burning. The plywood has been coming in with too much spalting & black marks & there is so much waste in each sheet is isn't cost effective.

I apologize for this inconvenience but we refuse to sell inferior quality products. 

Basswood bark boards and rounds are no longer being stocked due to lack of space. I am now offering them through Amazon for your convenience.

Basswood plate with portrait of Mel Gibson.Here are just a few of the burnings I have done on unique "canvases" such as basswood plates & beech wood bowls. They are wonderful because the plates come with their own frame & it looks beautiful. Bowls also make very unique gifts & they are a lot of fun to work on. I have burned on both basswood & beech bowls but the Beech are by far the better choice.

The Iris' were done on an oval scalloped edge plate. The portrait of Mel was done on a round scalloped edge plate. Both plates were made out of basswood.Bowl w/ Blackberry border.

It really doesn't matter what shape or style you use, bowls, plates & plaques just are the perfect canvas for your artwork & they make very unique gifts.

One of my favorite things  to use are wooden bowls. I discovered the Beech bowls many years ago. These bowls make wonderful unique gifts & when you burn a design on them the burn is crisp, clean & very vivid. It takes a little time to get used to burning on a curved surface the results are wonderful.

The design on this beech bowl was sketched on free-hand then burned. I finished this off with a food grade oil so it could be used as a salad or serving bowl.

It's fun to experiment with unique canvas' rather than doing all your creations on a flat piece of wood.

Unfinished Solid Beech Wood Bowl
9" Diameter

These unfinished beech hardwood bowls have been used by Decorative Artists, Crafters, Woodburners, Restaurants, Cooking Shops, Weddings and everyone else who needs a sturdy container with the natural warmth of wood.

Proudly made in the USA, these hand-turned hardwood bowls are of the highest quality.

Wood Bowls also make excellent surfaces for Decorative Painting, Rosemaling, Tole Painting, carving or you can use the bowls just as they are. However, if you are using them as salad bowls make sure to protect your hardwood bowls with a salad bowl finish, or season them with mineral oil.

These wood bowls are dried and turned using traditional old world methods. This means that the bowls are turned when "green" or wet and then dried. Due to this method no bowls are perfectly round.
