I did the exact same thing for a vanity I built recently. I installed the euro hinges, got everything aligned, then took them off for staining and they went back on just fine. Mine was made of alder, which is very close in hardness to poplar. I don’t like the toothpick idea for little screws like that since it knocks things off-center.
