Popular Poplar Slabs

September 28, 2018

Poplar is kinda our unsung hero wood. With a light color and range of grain and figure, its easily workable due to being on the softer side of the hardness scale, has a pleasant smell while working, and takes pain and stain equally well.

 

We keep a nice supply of clean and clear 4/4, 5/4, Super-wide 5/4,  9/4 and slabs. We also have a cool specialty cut of wide 1/2" of clean and clear, specific for drawer bottoms. This allows an easy path to creating highly-desirable and stable bottoms without a ton of waste.

 

Our quartersawn poplar is also highly coveted for its incredible stability and uniform grain pattern.

 

Poplar is our best "utility" wood. Used for table tops, cabinet backs, drawer bottoms, painted furniture and cabinets, bead board, and even building board-n-batton or siding.
