I’m looking to buy basswood. I would like around 30 board feet. Looking for thinner stuff preferably as the finished material needs to be 3/8”. I can pay for shipping but would prefer something local. I live in Cadillac MI.

Hi Chris,
I will be making a lumber run to Grand Rapids and I have Basswood. I can easily resaw it down to 1/2 ” thick and it has been drying about 1 year. I could probably kiln it by then if you contact me tomorrow. It would be about 90 miles south of you.

Chris, I have a lot of basswood lumber and would be willing to part with the amount you need. I live in the Grand Rapids area, as Rich said its about an hr and half from you. Rich offered first so check with him first. If it does not work out then just send me a message. Thanks
