Here's a link to an explanation of the various balsawood grain patterns and uses in modeling: Click Here

Next is a comparison with A, B, and C-grain side by side. Notice that the C-grain balsa sheet has a distinct checkerboard pattern and that A and B-grain look the same. You have to look at the narrow edge of the balsa sheet to determine whether it is A or B-grain. For A-grain you look at the narrow edge and it will have a checkerboard pattern. B-grain will look the same on the large flat side and the narrow edge.

Included is a chart on tips for cutting balsawood.
