I find there isnt much difference between tulipwood and unsorted redwood by the time you factor in the filling, sanding, knotting etc costs.
Alteranitvely try red grandis from Timbmet.
Good to mention the merits regarding Filling etc and about use for interior work. They help to clarify other aspects that can affect the final cost and time involved not just the initial outlay for the timber.
I've worked in a few joinery shops in my earlier days as a carpenter and tulipwood is not a wood that I have personally seen or used in any of them but I guess times are changing and tulipwood does seem to be quite a favourite in joinery shops around the country for interior work nowadays. Probably about time to give it a try.
