Where can you find Balsa wood?

Recommended Posts

I have been struggling to find a place where I can purchase balsa wood? My local hobby stores never have it in stock. Is there anywhere online where I could purchase balsa?

If you order from some online balsa specialist sites like Balsa USA, you can specify the density/weight of the balsa you order.  Most crankbait makers prefer medium to high density (12-18 lbs cu ft) wood because it is harder and requires less reinforcement.  If you can’t specify the density, you get whatever you get.

Just looked on Balsa USA, theres no options or mentions pertaining to density.... is there a standard density you could kinda expect to get if they dont specify??

Ive never used balsa, but was recently thinking id like to give it a try
