Drak Posted April 3, 2004 Report Share Posted April 3, 2004 I went to my local wood guy today. Besides the other stuff I bought, he had 4 huge fat-Bob pieces of Poplar, probably 50 X 16 X 2". He sez some bloke had bought them from him, then decided he didn't want them, and had left them there on consignment.. Whatever, I've been dealing with this guy for 8 years, I totally trust him. ...'Hmmm, kinda heavy' sez me...but no problem, when I get them home and saw 'em down to size they'll feel right-on, mate. He sold them to me for $20.00/ea., I bought 2, 'great deal!' sez I to Iself. Well, I got them home and sawed one down to rough-size for a body, the thing is heavy as freakin' Maple or Ash. Bollocks! sez I. I think it's still wet. Not 'wet' wet, but not thoroughly seasoned either. I can just tell, I've worked with Poplar lots of times, this stuff is WAY HEAVY for Poplar. Oh well, can't win 'em all. ...And you get what you pay for. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
