Basswood Strip sizes is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


I was working on something and kept looking at the Basswood catalog on the Midwest Products website trying to find what strip wood worked .. and didn't.

I finally grabbed the page .. deleted out everything that wasn't strip wood and added a column showing the dimensions in HO, then sorted and created a pdf. This makes it much easer for me to find the appropriate sizes. If there is any interest I can do one in other scales too.

Edit: I grabbed the Kappler lumber data and combined them both. Posted on my website as HO scale Lumber Dimensions
