Basswood is the first choice for wood blinds. Basswood is a very fine grained, neutral colored hardwood that is
ideal for making wood blinds. It takes stain and paint very well and is very light weight. Basswood is sustainable,
renewable and widely farmed and is an ecologically sound choice as cutting old growth forests is not required. Wood is a natural product. While we strive to produce wood blinds that are as uniform as possible, it is impossible to ensure that every piece of wood will be identical. The grain and characteristics of wood varies from piece to piece and even from section to section within a single piece. Part of the beauty of using wood is the natural variation of the wood.
