Balsa wood crap

Did you now that balsa wood has more than double the strength to weight ratio of titanium? Not that I’d want a crate made of titanium, either, for that matter. But balsa wood for a crate is going to have to be massively thick, or…broken.

Please reveal where you were able to find these works of art. I want to get several dozen to decorate my palace . . . and all at such a bargain rate for such quality workmanship. That’s actually bleached ebony and it’s worth hundreds of times that price. They bleach it and put it through a secret scientific process to reduce its weight so they can sneak it into the U.S. without true artisans getting their hands on it! It’s almost like the Emperor’s New Clothes!

I made one for my step daughter and she loves it.

On the positive side…. it is made in the USA.

Depot offers free pdf plans to make rolling storage – - – that looks more like Pine.

C’mon lightning… who wouldn’t want a titanium crate? :-)

Eric, I believe the ones you saw in this isle are not meant to be sold to woodworkers. Probably dedicated to skills-less people or the ones lacking from a good thickness planer ! :)

All the best my friend,

Serge
