WOOD TYPES: Poplar  

Color: White to gray in sapwood. In the heartwood, light to dark green with black and purple streaks are common. Poplar can have a very wide range of color.

Uses: Mostly used as a PAINT grade wood because of its wide range of color.

Workability: Mills/machines very well. Some movement can be expected due to the short amount of time Poplar spends kiln drying. Also has a slight tendency to "fuzz up" when working with dull tools. Glues and paints extremely well. Difficult to stain because it can "blotch".

Plywood: White Poplar plywood is kept in stock in ¼", ½", and ¾" thicknesses.

Additional Info: Also known as Yellow Poplar or Tulip Poplar. It is said that you can tell where a Poplar tree grew by the color of the wood. If the tree got a lot of water and minerals (by growing in a marsh or damp area), then its lumber will have a wide range of colors to it, .from green to purple to black.
