Technical Features

White wood, also known as American basswood or American linden is a very porous timber and therefore not a strong timber. It is excellent for carving and mouldings, the key reason Porta offers a range of decorative and interesting embossed profiles.

Visual Features

White wood is usually a pale-white to light-brown in colour with a straight grain and a fine and very uniform texture, often regarded as a featureless timber.

Workability

White wood is very easy to work with, very light and soft. It is easy to glue and can be stained beautifully with a wide range of finish tones.

Applications

White wood is most suited for mouldings, toy making and decorative DIY projects.
