American Poplar Tulipwood Planed All Round
American Poplar Tulipwood Planed All Round timber comes from various Eastern States of America. It is often used for kitchen furniture carcasses as it is kiln dried to between about 8-12% av.m.c. and is stable for profiles and mouldings.
It has a soft texture and is predominantly pale cream to light green in colour, and often within each board there will be vivid purple and black colouring. This is not a defect, but should be considered when finishing.
