Excellent Carving Woods For The Flat Plane Carver

Basswood is of course the all around best carving wood for the flat plane and most carvers .. It is readily available and takes detail well ... The price is reasonable and you can usually obtain it in the size you wish from most carving supplies

Jeltuong is a excellent carving wood from Mylasia .. but often times hard to get and can also be quite pricy ...

Butternut is a softer wood of the walnut family .. excellent to carve .. but a bit pricy at times
