Balsa Wood vs Basswood

I realized yesterday that there is huge difference between balsa and basswood! Balsa wood breaks easily! I bought one piece for making my bed and it broke before I even got it home!!
I'm still learning. The hard way sometimes!

I love all of the tutorials I've found! Great hints that I would NEVER have thought of!

I had to learn that lesson too- glad I'm not the only one! Better on the way home than after you had carefully constructed your bed :) Have you seen Mary's second blog from Miz Mary's Minis? Here is the link- it's a great tutorial resource!

Kathi, I'm glad that you are on a fast learning curve. Balsa is good for the inside of overstuffed chairs and sofas. Not for much else. Bass,on the other hand is what most people use for everything else. What are you going to build with it?

I'm going to make a bed. Like the one in my last post, hopefully! I'm going to use basswood! I love Mary's tutorials! Found a bed frame there that I'm going to try!
