The Beauty of Poplar / Tulipwood Planed Timber

Poplar / tulipwood timber is sourced from the Eastern United States, and enjoys a subtle texture and mellow cream to light green colouring which is often picked out with purple and black, making it a popular choice for kitchen furnishings, profiles, and mouldings. We stock thicknesses of 25mm, 32mm, 38mm, 51mm, 76mm, and 100mm, with lengths mainly available between 2.1m and 4.8m.

The advantages of poplar planed timber are usually associated with its low density and stiffness. 

Poplar is an extremely versatile wood which is very easy to work and turn, and is great for nailing, screwing and gluing. It also handles paint, stains and enamels without issue, and dries quickly and easily. However, the advantages of poplar planed timber also mean that it is not as strong as other woods, and is only moderately suited to steam bending. It is also non-resistant to decay, while the sapwood is permeable, and the heartwood is resistant to preservation treatment.
