Wood blocks for carving: why choose basswood?
Carving blocks that you select as a beginner will influence the outcome of your newly taken up hobby quite significantly. Basswood for carving almost has no grain which makes it a perfect candidate for a learning carver – basically, the wood carving blocks of basswood don’t give you resistance while you carve (not nearly as much as any other wood, at least). That’s why softwoods are the priority, mostly, and basswood is the first choice you hear about.
It’s pale so you can be as creative as you like, paint it all the colors of rainbow and more and overall use your imagination to its fullest in order to get your project where you want it. It’s not as easy with the dark woods, so if you’d like to use the wood as only the starting material to work on more and make it colourful – that’s basswood, no doubt.
It’s also odorless and children-safe, so, basically, it’s a material that can be made into gorgeous children toys, kitchenware and many other things that you’d much rather prefer to be safe, non-allergic and free to use anytime.
