Aspen wood is closest to white in color and is 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, the whitest wood we carry, a good substitute for Holly
General Workability: Aspen is very easy to work with and cut. It laser engraves and cuts great, doesn't split easily, takes nails and screws easily, and glues well. Although staining might look blotchy if the wood is not sanded evenly, it does take a finish well.
