Aspen wood is white and soft, but fairly strong. It is fine grained, uniform in texture and generally lacks a distinctive pattern. Closely related to Poplar. Aspen is a great all purpose wood and good for beginner woodworkers.
Common Names: Aspen, Bigtooth Aspen, Populus grandidentata.
Origin: Midwest and Northeast United States.
Color: Pale light yellow to nearly white with non-distinctive grain. Aspen is the whitest wood we carry and makes a great substitute for Holly.
General Workability: Very easy to work with and cut. Laser engraves and cuts great. Does not split easily and takes nails and screws well. Glues well. Staining may turn out blotchy if the wood is not sanded evenly, but takes a finish well.
