    Default Nice wood blocks for bases?

    This feels like a stupid question but is there a good source for the nice quality wood blocks a lot of people use to base their minis (affordable source)?

    Yeah, THESE are excellent! Affordable, good looking with a nice finish and a simple design that works for everything.

    Cool. Just ordered a batch from him. I was wondering if there are some lower cost alternatives but that\'s probably wishful thinking :D

    Yeah, probably. I haven\'t seen any cheaper alternatives, at least.

    By the way, I dont mean to imply DF\'s are too expensive - they are priced right for the quality. Was just curious if there are \"lower quality wood blocks\" out there too :)

    Also a cheap source can be childrens building blocks , a little sanding and a paint finish and they can be great. avoid any with letters on though.. can be a real bitch to eradicte any evidence.....:beer:

    Hi Rob,

    Im always looking out for wood like that myself. Problem is by the time the wood gets to my sources they have cut out all the nasty stuff to deliver furniture quality lumber. I need to find the time to take a trip out to a local saw mill to pick through the cut offs pile to see what they have. It just involves a whole days trip.

    Your friend makes very nice bases. I envy people who have better and more tools than I do to make them :)

    Hi Jarret,

    Paul Thompson from Just Bases does stuff for me, i ask for nice simple bases and i get em at very good prices 75p 40mm cubes, £1.50 for 60mm cubes, he will do any size or shape and has done more complex things from drawings iv sent him and i often get freebies :D

    quick pic of my stash at the mo


    give him a bell, order a few bits off him, ask for some samples and see wot u think!
