Re: Trillium Balsa

I have used balsa from Trillium for the past 10 years or more and have always found their balsa of excellent quality and just about the least expensive place around anywhere!

If you are able to go to their shop and pick out what you need yourself, you'll get a nice discount on top of their already good prices. Actually from London, Tillisonburg is not that far away.

The owner, Barry, is a very nice man and easy to deal with. Give them a try, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Re: Trillium Balsa

They always have heaps of balsa, etc. at every Swap-Shop around here and I've never seen a bad piece amongst it - I needed 1/32" sheet some time ago and he had and it was lovely smooth, even 18" sheets. As Gary says, you won't be disappointed.
He'll do metric sizes too if you want, I think.
