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.

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.
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.
Basswood Bark Boards
This is NOT Walnut Hollow basswood bark boards. This is the last of the wood I have left. This came from my favorite supplier in Minnesota. He was a vendor at some of the woodcarving shows I did. He had the best quality wood I've ever seen. I sold these for many years & it was always hard to keep them in stock. John is now retired but I bought a large supply before he retired...this is the last of it. This is winter cut which means they are "whiter" & less grain than Walnut Hollow basswood. John did all his own cutting & (kiln) drying & as one of the other wood vendors said "John is very hands on which is why his wood is so good".
#NSBW2 - Basswood Bark Board - Extra Large
This is the last of my stash & I cannot get any more! You will not find a better quality basswood bark board. This is perfect for relief carving, woodburning/pyrography & other crafts.
This piece is already sanded on both sides but I always recommend using very fine sandpaper (400,600 & 800) to give it a very smooth finish if you are going to use it for woodburning.
This jumbo piece of basswood is a rare find.
Measurements approx. 17-1/2" x 13-1/2" x 1"
ORIGINAL PRICE: $15.99
CLOSE-OUT PRICE: $12.00
|Due to the size & weight of this piece please contact me to order. This is too large to ship flat rate. It will ship by FedEx ground.|
