I think Kelby nailed it. If this were porous like white oak, you’d have an issue with sanding dust getting in the pores. Otherwise, you might be safe. I did this recently with ebony inlays in QSWO and you have to be careful to work the ebony mostly BEFORE it is inlayed for this reason.

Poplar, though softer, works a lot like maple from that standpoint…and we’ve all done a bunch of walnut/maple pieces without much issue.
