The great thing about basswood over pine is that it can be routed or carved and keep a detail. Very little fuzz and no splintering in my experience. It stains well also.

I started out with a lot of it due to being cheap bf and wanted to try scroll sawing. The scroll saw and I never bonded, but the experience with basswood was good.
