Balsa Wood Quick Info - The word balsa itself, is Spanish meaning raft, in reference to its excellent floatation qualities. Balsa wood has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio making it one of the strongest (lightweight) woods on the planet.
Balsa wood is used for the manufacture of model airplanes because of its light weight and warp-resistance.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to worldwide shortages, we are currently having to regulate purchases of balsa. When purchasing we ask that you be reasonable with the quantities you place.
