GG Joinery offers Tulipwood worktops.
Our full stave wood worktops are constructed from wide planks of American Poplar Tulipwood that run the full length of the worktop to ensure maximum durability and strength throughout years of constant use.
All Tulipwood panels and Tulipwood worktops are supplied fully sanded to smooth, 180 grit finish, ready for oiling without any additional preparation.
Tulipwood is ideal for mouldings or when timber is being painted or dark stained. Cost-effective, good all-round timber.
