Found these workboards over in England.

Emailed them to see how much shipping is.

Guess windmill outfits haven't grabbed up all the balsa in Jolly Old England. Smiley

Okay. Will look at tutorials.

Was looking for anecdotal tips but if this is the way it is then that's that.

Guillows's instruction sheet says use a pieced of cardboard from a shipping box.

Think that is the 'Thrift Champion' leader suggestion. at this point Smiley

ian's suggestion is very good.  There are a lot of options.  I've repaired the beginner's tutorials as best I could and would suggesting reading through those tutorials for further information:

Anybody know where there is one of these still in stock?

Word is all the balsa has been bought up to make windmill blades.

Guillows is making noises like they might be making theirs again.

I'm prepared to make a temporary replacement. Smiley

Found the right two sided tape to stick a piece of 1/4 in balsa over a piece of plywood.
