Paint Grade Poplar from TaylorCraft will contain all inherent characteristics of the species but will not have open defects. No attention will be given to color or grain matching and no colors will be removed. Some small knots, splits or cracks may be filled. Standard guidelines for minimum panel stave widths and slab drawer sizes which allow glue ups may not be followed. Our Poplar is intended only for painted finishes. General characteristics of Poplar are: generally straight grained with a fine, even texture. The coloration will vary drastically and may contain white, green or brown with purple or black mineral streaks.
If you or your customers are not familiar with the species or our grading, we strongly recommend ordering a cabinet door sample from TaylorCraft to prevent any misunderstanding.
