Topic tags/keywords: wood species

One of the guys here recently raised a question about staining poplar and in doing a little research I found this link, that you also might find useful.

The following link has actual photos and descriptions of many wood types.
Shows different grain angles and multiple individual pieces to show natural variation. Also shows “bogus” vendor photos from the internet. I think it is a very useful and informative website.
