Quartersawn Poplar

General Characteristics: Quartersawn Poplar is not as extraordinary as quartersawn oak may be. It tends to yeild a more straight grain look with some minor figure in some of the boards simply because poplar does not have the "medulary rays" like the oak. With it being quartersawn, it does add a little more stability to the board due to the grain orientation.

Some better uses for quartersawn poplar could be for styles and rails on raised panel doors or for some mouldings that could better utilize a straight grain look.
