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.

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.

Great job on the chest. Poplar has a lot of character.
