A littlw disappointed
I was a little disappointed with the basswood. I used it for building a guitar and wanted to do a clear stain but the wood had a lot of color imperfections and water marks. Ended up having to paint it. Other than that it was good with no cracks or breaks. It was also easy to work with.

Nice stock, but not best for 3D CNC
Order was prepared precisely to my specifications, packed very well, and arrived timely without damage. The stock was 95% clear throughout, and I had no trouble avoiding the imperfections. I use a CNC machine to 3D carve solid bodies (eg, models), and this was the first time using this species. Probably not best for this purpose. 1. It is a bit fibrous, clogging up the router vacuum. 2. It leaves a furry finished surface in some grain bands.
