I have always been under the impression staining poplar won't work well, that you need to paint. Seems to me I read not long ago of people staining it with good results, but I can't recall where. I'm thinking of making a large bookcase and was trying to decide between poplar and birch plywood. I would like to use poplar but not if I have to paint it. The downside of plywood as I see it is having to cover the edge of the plywood. Not sure of the direction to head. Opinions
