With fantastic versatile working properties, tulipwood is a timber enthusiast’s dream when it comes to creating light construction pieces such as furniture or bespoke carvings.
Tulipwood is most commonly used for light construction, such as:
Tulipwood is straight grained and has an almost white sapwood yet features a yellowish
-brown or pale olive brown heartwood.
Tulipwood is a versatile wood that is easy to machine, plane, turn, glue and bore. It dries
easily with minimal movement in performance and has little tendency to split when nailed. It
takes and holds paint, enamel and stain exceptionally well.
