1/8 Poplar Plywood / Poplar for laser cutters
UNFINISHED 1/8" POPLAR PLYWOOD WITH AN MDF CORE.
Poplar can range in color from a creamy white to a dark greenish brown to an almost gray.
We try and carry mainly dark poplar with green tones.
if your searching for a creamy off white color, we recommend maple.
Boards are cut 11 3/4" by 19" by hand. There may be very slight variations but they will be very close to the size listed. These boards fit perfectly within a Glowforge and cut/engrave perfectly.
We have been using this wood for over three years and are very happy with the results. This wood is great for all your crafting needs: Glowforge, Hobby laser, Wood Burning, CNC machine, Sign Making, etc.
RECOMMENDED SETTINGS: Poplar= Med Basswood ply (proofgrade setting). These settings are a good starting point for your Glowforge but may need to be adjusted to your specific machine/conditions.
This is my *favourite* material for my 'forge. I've been using it for three years now and I can't convey how easy it it is to work with.
I've tried other similarly advertised materials from various sellers and had regrets. The materials I've tried have had secret air pockets or filled holes that the lazer can't cut through--or worse yet, it catches fire. :(
Why mess with perfection? These fine folks offer great wood at a great price. Durable, easy to paint or stain--and looks great natural too!
Highly recommended! You won't be disappointed! :)
