You can use construction lumber if you like. The main problem with construction lumber that I’ve run into is that it is just too thick. Plus it is often not dry enough. But at the end of the day you can use just about any wood you want if you think it’s useable.

Many people like to paint poplar, as opposed to staining it. Paint can cover up mistakes so if you don’t like the look of the project at the end you can just paint it instead of stain it.

Above all, try to feel free to make mistakes and destroy things.
