Step 1: Good Idea
Come up with a craft or a project to do. For example a model plane or a bridge are pretty fun.
Step 2: Balsa Wood Formats
What you make depends on what shape or size if balsa that you have. Skinny strips of balsa are great for bridges and making frames. Wide pieces or sheets are really great for building model houses and three dimensional shapes. You can also make gliders which are really fun
Step 3: Tips
When you build with balsa wood I recommend epoxy glue , super glue , wood glue and cement. If you plan to paint the wood pretty much any thing works pretty good. I really like balsa for building thing because it is light strong and cheap. You can look at my other instructable on how to build an I pod stand out of the wood.
