I restore old string instruments as a hobby. As it happens, the small block of wood that holds the horsehair in on a violin bow is made out of basswood. Of course you can buy some of these pre-cut, but is it real basswood? Did they substitute something cheaper that looks similar? The only real way to know is to buy some basswood and make it yourself. I am thankful for Kit Kraft for having just the right size of just the right wood in small enough quantities to make it economical. Very happy with my purchase!

Thank you, happy customers make us happy too! And we love hearing about the many things our basswood is used for!
