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.
