The typical wood of carvers and widely used also for sculptures
In Europe, lime is the wood of choice of carvers, such as the basswood (T. americana ) in the United States, and there is not much more usage for it. The Texture is thin and uniform, the wire is straight, the closed pore and the wood is well cut, without breaking. In other words, it is everything that a wood carver prefers. The only downside is not having practically color or design and it turns yellowish with age. The cheeks and corners of the scanned parts are noted drawings rays or timber, but the timber is not evaluated by this.
