One Single Sheet of Balsa Wood 24" by 48" by 1.5" thick. Long Grain sheet.
This is an extremely lightweight sheet of real wood. Balsa wood is a delicate and somewhat brittle hardwood. Highly porous, this wood is what is used for making breakaway wood props, furniture, walls, window frames, etc. It can be cut, sanded and finished exactly like real wood. It's very easy to work and glues together quickly and securely using hot glue, superglue and of course any other glue intended for wood.
Balsa sheets that this thickness become quite durable. Please test to be sure that the performance characteristics are suitable for your application if using for a breakaway prop.
All balsa wood sheets are made up of laminated layers of smaller blocks of wood that are then heat pressed and glued together prior to being milled into the sizes offered. There will be evidence of this veneer/laminate process in all of these types of sheets. The veneers tend to be only slightly noticeable and if using a water based stain, will be almost unnoticeable.
The wood is very light and tends to resemble clear pine with a very delicate grain.
