Wooden blanks for woodcarving
Wood for carving is divided into categories based on hardness. When selecting wood, it's important to consider your experience, available tools, and the desired outcome of your project. Basswood is the most commonly used wood for carving. Basswood (linden wood), is a soft type of wood and is a good option also for beginners. When choosing wood, factors such as hardness, grain size, density, stability, color, and structure should be considered.
