Where To Buy Wood?

4 posts in this topic

I have been looking around my local hardware stores & lumber yards and I can't find any places that have poplar. Where would I be able to find wood at and what would be the best size to start out with to make a trout swimbait? Thanks in advance.

I have found it at both Lowes and Home Depot. Both have it in strips and boards but it is usually only 3/4 inch thick, finished on all four sides. If you have a lumber mill nearby they usually have scraps in thicker dimensions and will give them to you. Check the moisture content before using.

I bough the poplar dowels I use on my rat baits at Lowe's.

They have sizes up to 1.5" I think.

Perfect size for a 5.5" long jointed rat body.

Depending on the shape you want for your trout, these might be an option.
