    Where to buy Spruce sticks?

    Balsa USA, Lonestar, and Aircraft Spruce don't carry any (Aircraft Spruce does, but not in hobbyist dimensions). Is there another wood that is a suitable substitute?

    RE: Where to buy Spruce sticks?

    Aircraft Spruce does show on their web site that they carry it in the most commonly used dimensions starting with 1/8 " thickness x 3/16 width and lengths of 7 ft or less if desired
    What size are you looking for?

    Bass is a suitable substitute.

    National Balsa lists many sizes of Sitka Spruce.

    Oops, I guess I didn't look closely enough. I only saw the larger stuff that the full size builders use.

    Try calling Aircraft Spruce. I have bought smaller spruce sticks from them before. They probably will have to cut it from bigger stock, but it just takes a little more time.

    You can get spruce at most local lumberyards, not the same quality as from aircraft spruce but good enough for hobbyist. All you need is a table saw and you can make all the sticks you want, if you don't have a table saw you probably know someone who does that can rip the dimensions you need..

    Thanks for the responses guys. Aircraft Spruce has what I wanted, I just didn't search properly the first time for it.
