Hey Sonny
I’m with kindlingmaker The Charles Neil Finishing A-z is a total full blown school on finishing. Gel stain is a good choice for poplar because poplar tends to blotch but by using gel it keeps the stain on the surface and minimizes the blotching. Your right about poplar not having a great figure its a better paint grade material but with good finishing techniques you can make any wood look like many other woods.
