Also known as Yellow poplar, tulip poplar or canary whitewood; the North American Liriodendron tulipifera yields a light, soft, fine and straight grained wood that is creamy white with a heartwood in yellow/brown/olive tones that darken upon exposure to sunlight. It is a versatile wood that takes well to paint, stain and enamel finishes and hence is used for light construction, and in interiors for joinery, furniture and especially small items–poles, finials, tables to paint; the smooth finish make tulip wood the best for any furniture destined to be fabric covered.
