First of all, congratulations! Use poplar, it is WAY easier to get smooth and paint than pine. If you are painting, I’d recommend a product like Zinnser’s sealers. They will even seal the knots on pine boards…though I like the look of knotty pine and use nitrocellulose lacquer on them, myself. Plus, it yellows nicely over the years.
