Octagon – Chip Carved, basswood & EZboard
The basswood multi-use octagon is 6” x 1-3/4” with a 3-1/2” recess. Stained with a gel stain. Carving the top is not a problem but when carving the sides it is quite a challenge on the end grain.
The painted EZboard multi-use octagon is 6” x 2” with a 3-1/2” recess. EZboard is a new product I am distributing. It is a 15#/ft3 high-density urethane that carves wonderfully, holds detail and will accept any type of finish. There is no grain to deal with so you can see that I easily carved large chips around the edges without any trouble. Basswood ranges from 20#/ft3 – 37#/ft3 density. EZboard is 15#/ft3 throughout.
EZboard works well with normal woodworking equipment. Boring the 3-1/2” holes was a breeze in EZboard when compared to basswood. Sign makers use high-density urethane. I’m pricing EZboard wholesale so you can try it. Call me or email firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing. I have thicknesses up to 8”! EZcarving.com
