Proofgrade Poplar Hardwood is a perfect fit for projects like personalized puzzles, signs, or scale models. It offers a wide variety of coloring from board to board, with shades of creamy whites to subtle yellow-grays to nearly green. No two pieces are alike, making it an especially unique wood - and one with a long history: Da Vinci’s legendary Mona Lisa was painted on a poplar panel.
About Proofgrade Hardwood:
Proofgrade natural hardwoods are solid boards inspected to ensure there are no major knots or defects. Our team hand-selects these premium materials for their strength and beauty. They’re inexpensive enough for a weekend project but can create heirloom-quality keepsakes like boxes, jewelry, and plaques. Unlike plywood, the beautiful edge showcases the grain after the print is finished. Our hardwoods, plywoods, and veneers come from the same forests, so while each piece is different they can be combined in the same project for a fluid and professional look. Each board is coated with a furniture-grade semi-gloss finish and protected with a removable protective white coating that you peel off when the print is complete. As a result, each print looks incredible straight out of the laser. Proofgrade hardwoods are a natural product, so each board is endowed with a distinctive pattern and grain all its own, and no two boards are alike.
