That is the finest poplar project I’ve ever seen. Wow, nice job!

Nice looking desk. You achieved a real nice finish. I’ve only had blotchy disasters when I’ve used poplar. It looks great!

Neat and tidy. A question: am I seeing through the back, in the middle cubby-hole? Is there a purpose to that, or was it a “nearly done and I’ll take the photo now and just finish the back a bit later” situation?

Bradnelson~ Good job on the finish, I did the same desk in cherry and the project came out great, but I’m not the best at applying finishes yet, still getting there.
LeTurbo, I bought the same plans for that desk and it’s the way it’s designed. It’s supposed to be a computer desk so you can run your cords through the back.
