Poplar can be annoyingly soft, Richard. I think finishing is going to be frustrating not only for the contamination potential noted above, but also because it just doesn’t work up like walnut.

I don’t think it’s unworkable, I’d just like you to be prepared for what may be less than optimal results. In either case, there’s a whole lot of learning going on here, and that’s what it’s all about in my book.
