Basswood for turning ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone with experience with basswood for turning ? I know it is commonly use for carving, how well does it turn ?

It will be for pieces that will be painted.

So soft that it tears quite easily.  Use plenty of wood filler and sandpaper.

Sometimes gets fuzzy if you use anything less than scary sharp lathe tools.
