I just bought a bunch of lumber at an estate auction. There was lots of oak, cherry & pine, and some short (about 4-5’) basswood pieces. They are thick enough that I need to re-saw them into usable boards.
My question, since the only thing I know about basswood is that it’s very light, is whether it’s worth the effort.
Will basswood stand up to the weight considering that I may be taking off the wall & transporting around a bit?
I suppose it’s of use for drawer sides & backs & maybe some other secondary wood uses, but how many of them can I make? -SST
