I've turned several nose cones and one tail cone from basswood, and one transition from balsa. I was very happy with all the basswood nose cones, it has a very tight grain and is very smooth. But I'm looking for alternative woods to use. Basswood is expensive, and not that easy to find. Has anybody used redwood or pine for nose cones? I figure it would have to be clear of knots, and kiln dried so it's dry enough. Anybody have any idea as to the weight differences?
