poplar

This was my first project - thanks Ana.
I had to shrink the dimensions from the plan to fit our space. Pretty happy with how it turned out given it was my first project.

whitewood is soft!!!poplar is stable ,hard and paints well....dont comment if you dont know what your talking about

the previous poster had my line of thought when I purchased the wood - Poplar looks great and would look fantastic with just a little bit of stain, right?

But I didn't know that staining poplar would be such a challenge.

So, yes, poplar paints well and that's why I painted in the end.
