Best Answer...

Answer:

balsa wood is a very soft, light wood and inexpensive compared to other woods. It's usually used for small projects (models, carvings ...) and it can be hard to find larger pieces. If there is a hobby shop near you that may be the best place to find it locally. Most lumber stores don't carry it. You can get it a cheap price from the dollar store. You can also make a plane out of balsa wood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk03X7bht0A
