Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

Coloring books are no longer just child’s play. In fact, the trend of adult coloring books is a booming business these days. Woodcraft’s Marketing Director Liz Matheny recently took coloring to a new level by transferring a pattern to wood, and her results are gorgeous!
Knotty with uneven finish
Being used for various chipcarving projects (plaques, trivets, etc.) Board had knots & rough, uneven sections at one end. Luckily the waste was not too signigicant. Would use again due to low cost
Very nice wood indeed :-)
Very nice wood. I used this wood to make a Solid-body Electric Mountain Dulcimer. All I did to the wood was apply 2 coats of clear finish. Looks gorgeous indeed. :-)

Poplar doesnt get enough recognition
I bought this particular poplar to make a potatoe and onion storage bin for my kitchen. It works great with any machine or power tool that you use. I have also made picture frames with this poplar that turned out near perfect. This is top quality hardwood poplar that you can use for virtually anything. I love working with it, plus it is very affordable.
