Nice Looking Table!
I like the little shelf. Did you turn the knob yourself?

Nice job. Poplar is good for making fake cherry, the grain is almost the same. Thanks for the post.

Nice job. You added the dye into the stain? I think that is what you meant.

Great job. It makes me think twice about turning a large poplar that needs to come down into firewood. I have debated making lumber from it. You may have swayed in that direction. Thanks. -SST

Beautiful table! I’m new here so if this is not kosher, let me know. Would you consider sharing the plans? This would make a beautiful heirloom piece for my grandson.
