Balsa

2 posts in this topic

Where could I get a nice block of balsa? How much does it normally cost? And how easily is it to carve by hand with an extremely, very very very sharp 8O pocket knife? As you can tell, ive never used balsa before.

DSaavedra,

Balsa is easy to cut with a sharp knife. Use a utility knife to get the balsa close to form, then use sand paper to finish shaping the lure.

Check Hobbytown for balsa prices. http://www.hobbytown.com/ There could be a better source but you might find it locally thru hobbytown.
