    I really like FBE but seeing a colorful piece of rainbow or mineral stained poplar gets my vote!

    It's hard to imagine how many colors can be created by trees. Lots of poplar around here has a heart section of black/purple/gray/pink/green all overlaying each other. I guess it from minerals in the soil. The mills here often sell it as "paint grade" and practically give it away.

    That's more or less exactly what this is I just hunt down logs that have extreme amounts of it. It's kinda a fine line between not enough to be really neat and so much the tree begins to rot. But when j find those perfect happy mediums it makes really awesome looking lumber. Few blanks I cut today for an order.

    I like the red/black and the brown/white. I like that drastic change in color. Especially the red/black. What would a LFRB shipped to 24382 minimum 4" width cost me?

    Yes and no I've got a bunch of it but it's all got defects in it I'm sure couple could be made but nothing good. Ones I posted other day were best I had atm. I've got another batch in kiln right now I have high hopes for for less splitting. I haven't forgotten I actually cut ones other night with you in mind but just nothing worked out if I got good color was defects
