I don"t know if this has been posted before. How much does a 1/16 x 1/16 x 36 balsa wood weigh in general?

You are watching: How much does balsa wood weigh


Although classified as a hardwood, balsa wood"s density ranges from only four to twenty pounds per cubic foot. Finished balsa wood, like you find in model airplane kits, varies widely in weight. Balsa is occasionally found weighing as little as 4 lbs. per cu. ft. On the other hand, you can also find balsa which will weigh 24 lbs or more per cu. ft. However, the general run of commercial balsa for model airplanes will weigh between 6 and 18 pounds per cu. ft. Eight to twelve pound balsa is considered medium or average weight, and is the most plentiful.

.. which means take your scale in to the store with you and pick the best pieces. If you"re lucky, the owner will call you when new stock comes in, and you can pick through them first!
