1/8" Poplar

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Guys

I'm wondering if you could help me find a source (preferably in the Ottawa area) for 1/8" thick poplar as I am starting a B25 from Ziroli plans and can't seem to be able to find it locally.

Any info would be helpful.

I am not sure if you have a company in your location but I purchase from "Windsor Plywood". They sell small quantities and I use Baltic Birch which I get in larger sizes(30x60) with no imperfections. This is what I am building my formers from for my Raven.
Check the phone book and you might find something similar.

I bought a board of poplar from Winsor Plywood. 1/2 inch by 6 inches by 6 feet. It has been very useful. It is a nice light wood, straight grained. Lighter than spruce but not spongy like balsa. I keep using it for all kinds of things in building aircraft.

popular ply

Hi guys: I quit using Baltic years ago. I find it fairly heavy, can and does have voids. Marine grade Mohg [avail at boat builder suppliers ] is easier cutting, voidless and weighs the same as lite poplar ply +/- a few grams depending on density of both pcs being weighed.

Just my two grams worth.
