Hi everyone,

I am looking for some wide poplar and cannot find any wider than 12”. Does anyone know where I can get some poplar, no more than 4/4, that is atleast 14” W? Thanks!

Sorry I don’t know, but you could edge joint two pieces if that is an option for you. Its easy to do.

I’ve purchased several 4/4 poplar boards 16”+ in width from a local Colorado lumber store:
Last time I was there three weeks ago they actually had an 18” wide 8/4 poplar board.. the biggest chunk of poplar I’ve ever seen before.

Not sure if you want to pay shipping charges.. but you asked for a place that sells wide poplar. Good luck

You might give Tule Peak Lumber a call. They are near Temucula, CA He has a very large selection of wood. He is also a member of LJ.
