I like what you’ve done here. I have used poplar as a secondary wood on several projects, but I’ve learned to like the color variations of it more and more. I believe I may take your example and start using it more as a primary wood on some projects. Nice job, by the way.

Your piece above is good reason why people should give more respect to poplar. Nice wood selection.
