Lonestar Balsa

Has anyone bought anything from this company since they have restarted business after the fire? Wondered how they were and what their product is.

Sure have. They have been pretty busy so they took a few extra days but that is understandable. Good looking box of wood all well packed and ready for me to start cutting.

Haven't ordered wood yet but still waiting for an e-mail response to 2 questions regarding bulk orders and other available supplies. Been almost 2 weeks now, but they have always been great about orders.

I just received my order...no complaints. I also bought some of the "salvaged wood" and it was a good deal in my view.

I ordered balsa from them a couple of times before they had their devastating fire and was quite satisfied with their quality, not to mention their prices were very competitive. I was really sad when their building was destroyed and happy to see them "come back from the dead." Back in the day I think they stocked ply, bass, balsa, maybe some other stuff too, but since their return a month or so ago I think they're only balsa so far.

I just received my first order from them since their return. The wood looks great and was well packaged. They sent emails to confirm receipt of order, and on shipment.

They were not instantaneously fast to acknowledge my order but were not slow either. I'd sum it up by saying that they delivered just what they said they would, and did it in a businesslike manner. I highly recommend them.

Ordered a bunch of the 1/8th salvage balsa sheets. Good quality and a good deal. Glad to see them back.
