S4S Poplar Lumber - Thick

What is Poplar good for? It's a great option for projects that need staining or painting!

What does Poplar lumber look like? No two boards are ever the same. You'll find anything from a light cream tone, to green or dark purple streaking throughout. Although Poplar is on the softer side, it surprisingly is actually a hardwood! You will enjoy working with Poplar as it's great with hand tools and power tools. It's not the best choice for projects that require durability or strength, but it is a fantastic utility wood. Enjoy working with one of our most popular woods!

If you would like to do the milling yourself - try our 8/4 Rough Cut Poplar Lumber for a more budget friendly version.

S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term "surfaced" or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough cut lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough cut lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x (5-6”) x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.
