You can make any wood look like another with dye, AS LONG AS THE GRAIN PATTERN IS THE SAME!!!!!!!!!
You cant make red oak look like Walnut do to that fact!!!!
Poplar and Walnut have the same grain pattern. You are in luck!!! Get some Trans Tint dye, I cant think of which one but I did the same, maybe Med or Dark Brown, experiment on poplar scrap. Then after the dye which is water and Alcohol based, a thin coat of cut oil based Poly to seal the dye finish, 50/50 Poly and mineral spirits, then the finish of your choice.
