So I've made a few boards, I'm pretty happy with how I've done so far (see mostly harmless boards in resources), and I would really like to try to shape a balsa board.
Something simple, no chambers, nothing too crazy, just a nice longish board for the small days.
I have exhausted my abilities on the internet, and I just can't find balsa lumber in th configuration I would like to. I have found a couple of places to buy blanks, but I'm sure not going to pay from $400 to $750 for a blank, especially when I could make my own for much less.... If I could just find the raw lumber. :(
I know I'm not the only guy to have wanted to do this, and I'm pretty sure that a number of swaylockians have made balsa boards at some point or another, so where does the balsa come from?
Or is that one of those closely guarded secrets?
