On the woodsmith shop tv show they finished poplar and it looked a lot like walnut. Got any tips on how to do that? I haven't been able to find that show information.
I am wanting to build a quilt rack for a Christmas gift and building it from oak puts it higher than the budget for the gift. Poplar and pine are the other wood choices for the big blue store.
Thanks for the help.
Also try pricing Birch at Home Depot and I've found hard woods labeled overseas hardwood clean no knots smooth and actualy bland looked like a blank sheet with grain texture. Just unknown or named not know by our standereds.
I was being sarcastic. I love this site it is a place to go when you can't find the answers to questions specifically about the Kreg jig. A 2 minute google search or you tube will give you all the information you need. Charles Neil does a whole video about staining and dying Poplar and it took far less time to find than starting a thread here and waiting for replies. I have also found people posting the same questions over and over again on this site without taking the time to do a search of the forum.
chuck, I normaly use minwax products, and i find them easy to use and i think i get pretty good results., but if you go to minwax.com there is a forum section that should be able to answer anything you want to know. check it out very informitive
