Default Different Type of Balsa????

As I have discussed in other threads, I am in the process of building / modifying a 2m glider kit...

One thing that I have to do is re-make the sides of the fuze do alter the shape of the nose area...
The Balsa that I have got from a model shop seems to be different from the one that the kit is made out of.
The Balsa that is in the kit seems to have a more noticable grain in the wood, while the new sheet that I have seems very plain and blank...

Are there different types of Balsa??? Do they have different strengths???

Could anyone suggest other methods of extending a fuze where a solid nose block is mounted so a bulkhead holding a electric motor can be attached???

Any suggestions would be useful...
