Hand Selected and shipped right to you!
Our hand-selected pieces of cottonwood bark are just what you have been looking for. They are extremely difficult to get (unless you live in northern British Columbia and not afraid of a good hike into the forest). Furthermore, they require harvesting by someone experienced. We always have a good selection of pieces in a variety of sizes and weights. While it is difficult to fit your order exactly, we can be very close and you’ll only be charged for ‘actual weight’.
The best tree bark for woodcarving! We have found that 1 lb is a nice size for carving wood-spirits or single whimsical cottage or lighthouse. If you want to carve double whimsical cottages, multiple spirits, etc., then choose 2 lbs or larger for best results.
Use this guideline as to typical sizes, weight, and cost: 1-1/2 lb piece is approx 3-1/2″ in width, 15″ long, and 3″ thick. If you are after a bigger piece that is not a problem ~ we’ve got it! Just make your requests on your order form and we will try to help you.
