FAS Sawn to Size American Tulipwood Timber
Tulipwood / Poplar is ideal for joinery, including doors, interior trim, light construction, boats and toys. This lightweight timber is easy to work with and shape which is what makes it so popular with Joiners. Tulipwood takes a paint well and is easy to treat which is why it is commonly used for skirting and architrave, as you are likely to gloss over the top of the wood.
Our cut to size American Tulipwood timber products (also called sawn to size) are literally sawn down to your chosen measurements and come straight off the saw with no machining performed to the edges, unlike our planed products. When choosing your measurements, you should enter your nominal sizes so that the wood is ready for you to work on.
Working with Tulipwood
We supply cut to size timber untreated and kiln dried to remove moisture content. Sawn American Tulipwood is ideal if you don’t have the facility to cut timber down in-house. American Tulipwood is supplied in FAS Grade and varies in colour from olive green to yellow or brown.
The timber can be glued, nailed (when nailing use stainless steel nails) and finished well. Poplar is also capable of holding hard enamel finishes.
At iWood Timber Merchants, we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest percentage of usable American Tulipwood possible from your order.

Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
