...from the “poplar” arena, I bought a truckload of it for finishing out my house (door framing, trim, face frames etc.)...great to work with (easy on the tools) but I think I’d put it in the same class as clear pine for structure stuff if that helps any.

1” stock allowed to dry then glued up into 2” stock would probably be great (again from the poplar arena…it stained up much better than I thought it would…I made my fireplace mantle from it and got lucky with the grain). But it’s still pretty soft wood.
