Once again for the Home Show. I get a lot of large Poplar trees from the tree services locally. The ones that died of natural causes usually have cool colors. This was a single slab cut into 2 pieces. They are 42” long, 20” tall and 20”-28” wide. Bases are also Poplar and simple design. Finished with oil based polyurethane.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Hope you sell it all. I remember when you blogged your first show. I think you have the merchandising figured out.

Gorgeous slab(s), Monte. You did well by them. They, in turn, should do well for you in the Home Show. Thanks for sharing.

Who knew poplar could look so good? Good job my friend. Bases may be simple but look stout and attractive.

Great work, Monte. I don’t know why poplar gets a bad rap. I think it is a great wood.

Poplar must be a poplar wood in your area, Here we have allot of it but is generally pure white, Nice grain and wood colors, You always bring out the best in your projects, a beauty to behold.
