Don Silsbe Posted May 3, 2021 Report Share Posted May 3, 2021 Finding good material to make spars for our boats has always been difficult. I love Sitka Spruce, nut the cost and availability are prohibitive for me. Lumberyard spruce works. But it is getting harder to find. I read something on the Duckworks Facebook page that I thought was interesting enough to share. Several builders there have used poplar for their spars. They say that you can bleach out the green by exposing it to sunlight for a few days. What are your thoughts about using poplar? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
