I'm building a shelve. I have been practicing with pine ready for the expensive wood. I've never heard if poplar. What's is it it's ugly to me, but expensive as the redoak
I have used wipe on oil-based stain followed by wipe on poly, both water & oil-based. I think I like the water based poly better ONLY because it dries so much faster and I can do multiple the same day.Ezee said:Burb, what is your method for staining and finishing poplar?
My weak point has always been stain, though I'm getting better. We also had a guess presenter this past Sat at our Woodturners Assn. His name is Les Casteel and he does AWESOME work. (www.woodthatrocks.com) He's a club member who has been published in the AAW journal, and will be a guest regional presenter at the upcoming SWAT in Waco.Ezee said:And do you get good results?
