I’m making some mash paddles, and I’m currently drying a tulip poplar I sawed down to make my first masterpiece!!!
Q: Is poplar ok to mash with, or can it leach? I know maple’s fine, and these spps. of trees share a lot of common properties, but how’s about ole’ “liriodendron tulipifera”?
I’m a dang forester, you think I’d know about it’s properties, but I guess I missed the day we talked about making mash paddles!
