So, I have a Google Alert set up to find different articles, blogs and site that have to do with wood turning. Today, in the email I got from them was this link.

Even though tulip poplar isn’t my first choice of wood for turning, it would have been very cool (I think) to have been able to get a few pieces of that tree.

I agree, it sounds like the good wood. Very large, my tree guy saves the really large stuff for “saw logs” so the biggest I get from him is 18” diameter, not complaining. That is also going to be old growth, with tighter growth ring, leading it to be more stable. I think that a peice of this tree would be neat to have. I get special peices of wood from time to time, and to date I have not turned them, I am being patient and waiting for the divine inspirsation to know what to do with them and get the most out of them.
Thanks for posting this article.
