Yes, I used a dark oak stain – one coat and some 2-3 coats in the lighter areas. Poplar is tough to stain! haha

All your projects look great RoyBoy. Could you elaborate on these bamboo panels? They’re very cool. One of my good friends is a huge fan of all things bamboo.

Thanks for saying! The bamboo is actually standard window blinds (inexpensive too). After I used those, which were harder cutting – had to tape the ends together), I then found panels of bamboo used for decorating walls. They are larger, easier to cut/handle and cheap at Lowes and H.D.

Its actually from a window shade… pretty cheap one from Home Depot at that! haha Then I poly’d it with the rest of the bed for protection. Thanks!
