POPLAR LUMBER - ROUGH RWL

POPLAR 5/4"

POPLAR LUMBER – 5/4" – FAS
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

Poplar sapwood ranges in color from creamy white to greyish-white to white with a yellowish cast and is sometimes striped. The heartwood, which is usually tan, also presents a variety of tones, sometimes with a slightly greenish cast, and occasionally with dark purplish streaks. Poplar offers a uniform, fine texture and is light to medium in weight with a straight grain.

Yellow Poplar is exceptionally easy to work with both hand and machine tools, although its woolly texture can blunt tools slightly. It planes and turns beautifully and has satisfactory nailing properties with good screwing and gluing properties. It is a medium-density wood with low shock resistance and stiffness. It does not shape or sand well, but holds paint, enamel, and stain well. On occasion, stain will produce patchy results.

Region: Eastern United States

The following board foot calculator can be used to help you calculate your order.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.

To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:

    Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
    Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
    Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.

If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
