You only need to worry about wood movement across the width of the board. You can disregard movement along the length because it s negligible. If the picture with the black F-clamps is the poplar frame, you won t have any issues using glue and screws.

Any expansion or contraction of the poplar will only affect the height. We are talking about perhaps1/32” since those are narrow boards.
