Balsa has excellent sound, heat, and vibration insulating properties, and is also incredibly buoyant. "Balsa" is the Spanish word for "raft".
|Colour/Appearance||Heartwood tends to be a pale reddish brown color, though it is not commonly seen in commercial lumber. Most boards/blocks of Balsa are from the sapwood, which is a white to off-white or tan colour, sometimes with a pink or yellow hue.|
|Grain||Balsa has a straight grain with medium to course texture and low natural luster.|
|Workability||Generally very easy to work.Balsa generally should not be used to hold nails, with glue being the preferred method of joining. Balsa stains and finishes well, though it has a tendency to soak up large quantities of material on the initial coats.|
