I was just introduced to Tulip Poplar. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. It seems considerably heavier then regular poplar and also seem harder.
I was going to use if for a band saw box as an experiment.
I was wondering if any of you had ever used any of it or even heard of it.
What other uses would be appropriate. I only got one board of it about 4/4×6”x8’

Tulip poplar is in the Magnolia family. It is a very nice wood to work with. Saws and dries like a dream. Machines very well. Kinda hard to stain sometimes without blotching, but there are ways to get around that. A truly great wood to work with.

I saw and dry a lot of it.
