I have been getting my balsa wood from this company. I have found their prices extremely reasonable, they ship really fast and they package the wood well to prevent damage.

I really can't stress enough about the service I've gotten from these people.

Lone Star Balsa is back in business also(after a fire).  I've found them very competitive.

Last word out was that Lone Star Balsa was closed. I checked their web site and it says, Closed until further notice.
