Interior Lock Jamb Leg (Stain Grade Poplar)
Lock prepped (mortised) jamb leg for interior doors. Stain grade poplar can be stained or painted to match your desired look.

- Stain grade wood - perfect for painting or staining
Stain grade poplar with rich grain, durability, and longevity. Resists rot, twisting, warping, cracking while lasting for years of continued operation. Combine this with a wood that is easy to work with a chisel or trim with a saw and you have the ideal wood for framing the doors in your home.
This wood takes paint (oil-based or latex) extremely well.
While paint looks good on poplar, you can make it look like more expensive, fine-grained woods by staining. We recommend gel stains for ease of application and beautiful results.
Quickly assembly a new premium door frame by nailing leg jambs together with our poplar interior door head jambs. We recommend 1.5" brad nails.
Poplar is a great wood to work with and can be easily shaped or trimmed to retrofit in an existing frame or used in new construction to quickly correct any slight alignment issues.
