Quality is always our #1 goal & our Customers Agree!

"I have just received my first order with your company and wanted to tell you how happy I am with the quality of the wood. The sitka is straight and measurements are consistent. The plywood is not warped which can happen from time to time and the balsa sheet is very consistent which will make finishing more easy. I look forward to doing business with you again, as I have to get more blocks as well as more balsa." - Thank you for your review Sahag!

"Thank you for a great shipment, contents arrived in excellent condition due to your great packaging. I ordered extra as I am used to seeing some warped or damaged basswood and balsa. Yours was straight and of great quality." - Thank you for your review Victor!

"I have ordered from other suppliers and never received the quality of wood that I received in my recent order. The shipping was quick, the material was straight, and the quality was perfect. Will order again." - Thank you for your review Robert!

Our balsa wood comes to us straight from Ecuadorian plantations.
