Couple of Cutting Boards I Have Sold/Given. My Daughter Claimed the one with the Green & Black Poplar Strips. Again Most wood Comes from Pallets.

I really like the green stripes. I’ve been looking for a good wood to achieve this look, and the closest I found was olivewood. I never thought of poplar, would it hold up well long-term?

I like the effect of the green poplar. It has that “outside in the summer on the patio” feel.

That looks great, but using pallets can be a dangerous thing around food because you don’t know what they have been used for (chemicals and such). After driving a truck I’ve seen them use the same pallets that you use for chemicals as they do for food. This stuff does soak into the wood.

sadly Phil53 is right, i’d contemplating using pallets also for such a project and decided against it in the end. They do however make decent wood for Adirondack chairs if you can find good ones.

To Dchip – When I think of woods with a green color I think of Lignum Vitae first. However, as you may know, it is quite expensive and extremely hard. I’ve worked with Olive wood and I don’t recall a green tint. Maybe it was the pieces I got. If you really want green wood that is easy to work with and reasonably priced, I would opt for dying some wood.

Karson – Very Nice I have even seen some Purple looking striping in Poplar. Thanks Patron your work leaves one to Imagine all sorts of opportunities. As for chemicals in the wood. More are in the water, food, Air, we eat, drink, breathe. Dchip the green is usually not very Much.
