For crafting, it is very easy to use because it is so easy to cut with an Exacto knife. It is not durable at all, but it does get reasonably strong when wood glue is applied. Elmer's wood glue claims that it bonds stronger than wood, and that is definitely true with balsa wood in general. I used this wood to make little houses and furniture for my mice. I found that using a more durable wood like Skinny Sticks or Woodsies (square-ended popsicle sticks) to frame the structure and then using the balsa wood to fill in the spaces worked well.
This product is great for a rainy Saturday kind of project or it might be useful if you need extra materials for a balsa wood model kit. The only problem is that if you need a specific size or thickness, I don't think you'll be able to rely on the product description.
