Looks great, very well executed. Ya know, I think poplar has gotten a bum rap over the years. Like any wood, match the grain and use the best finish, and it can look great on anything.

I too like the raised panel lid.

Randy, built a tool chest from poplar and love all the colors. Glad you didn’t paint it, the finish shows the great workmanship you’ve put in. Nice job.
