Basswood is a premium wood used for plaques and signs. The light colored wood is perfect for you if you want the best wood available for your project, guaranteeing you the best results. Basswood is lightly figured wood that sands easily and has minimal grain. Perfect for stain, paint and decoupage. Because their is a lack of pitch or sap in the wood, sealing the wood prior to finishing is not required.
We offer many of our wood plaques and signs in basswood. When we are producing wood signs and plaques in the shop, we always try to pick basswood because it requires the least amount of preparation and provides a more stable and predictable result. The little amount of extra money that you will spend for premium basswood can easily be made up in time savings.
