After watching a PBS episode of Craft in America 10 year old grandson was super interested in carving. He's been trying to use branches from local oak and alder trees we have and did make a few things but the basswood is much easier to work with. He's having a lot of fun with this and book we bought in the same style as the show we watched. The pieces are a on the small side but ok for dipping your toes in. We'll be searching for a good sources of pieces that are a bit larger.
Item was exactly as described and delivery was on time.
I didn’t like that they were such small pieces of wood

Nice even grain
I very much enjoyed using this wood to carve, it was easy to cut and didn't cause to many burrs.
Beginning carving (wizards, Santa Claus and an owl.
The blocks were as presented. Nice material.
Smallish pieces, but they work great.
