    I buy coffee stirrers, 250 to a pack, at the grocery store to make O scale boards for wood bulldings. They're cheap, made of poplar, and take stain very nicely. They are tougher to cut than basswood or yellow pine but they look great. They scale out to 1x8s.

    Sounds like a good idea. I used to use them to make wooden boats. I would use a tea pot boiling away to steam bend them.
