The rest of the tree is too hard to carve .
        Sorry I missed this. Yes that's basswood. That's not on our property but on a public access pathway and I only just discovered it this year so couldn't honestly answer your question. We have maple, bich, Apple, cherry, ash, cedar, elm, boxwood, you name it but no base wood on our property so I found a fallen tree and took a chunk. Unfortunately I don't use much basswood at all because most things I make require dense hardwood.
        The trees that were harvested looked really good though and I doubt they'd have taken them down if they were only half good but don't know for sure.
        Thanks for the compliment.
