Does it cause as much grief as turning glued chunks of foam? Just asking for others because I won't be making any national meets until I retire.

It causes much more grief than foam.

Foam has a consistent density. Balsa has way more differences In density even from opposite sides of the same piece of 3 wood.

Then there is the glue line.
