Anybody in the Portland, OR area interested in buying some poplar logs?
Hi George. As you know, it's not much by way of turning stock either.
Here in NW Oregon there's so much better wood, like Western Big Leaf
Maple, that's commonly available for *free*. If I was going to pay for
any yard tree wood it'd have to be a Black Walnut, Plum, figured/burled
WBL Maple or Madrone. Other than those, we locals get more free wood
than we can use - and much of the stuff like Poplar, Red Oak and Alder
end up being given away to the turning chapter raffles.
Don't get me wrong, there is some value to turners for woods like
Poplar. It's a fine wood for a beginner who just needs to make shavings
and practice, practice, practice. But I'd certainly not expect them to
have to pay for it.
