    Thumbs up New wood caps!! Had to do it..

    Ok a couple of weeks ago I was not happy with how the old wood caps were coming out. So I went ahead and went to Auston Hardwoods and had them make me Plank 1" X 11.5" X 8' long out of poplar. If your looking to kill a few hours, just get to work on some new wood caps for your SDA's.

    The wood looks fantastic, now the fun stuff of figuring out what color of stain to get..

    Pics..

    I agree. I like Minwax's "natural" colored stain. I don't think it has any pigment in it at all. It's amber and translucent looking, but it darkens up any kind of wood very nicely. It will make the grain on that POPlar really POP. :D

    Watch out when using a natural color stain on the greener parts of poplar it will make the green color more intense ie. baby food green. That may or may not be what you are looking for.

    Larry, what made you choose poplar (aside from it being about the cheapest wood per BF)? It's very light and soft.

    If you're going to stain, do the backside first. Poplar can tend to look blotchy when stained and you may need some practice on the non-visible surfaces.

    There are pre-stain wood conditioners that help with blotchiness. Google poplar stain blotchy or something like that, and you'll find lots of info I'm sure.

    You aren't planning to glue this top on, right?

    edit: did you get any scrap pieces? Since you have exposed endgrain, I'd also check to see if you like the way the endgrain looks compared to the face grain after the stain is applied.

    Larry, that's just gorgeous woodworking. It makes me tired just thinking about it because I really Suxk at that. You, on the other hand are a 'real' craftsman.

    I would also go with a darker luxurious stain! Love the look of rich wood.

    thanks for the clari tool. i seem to have become a ittle defensive on this forum due to some past dialogue exchanges. nice work on the rebuilds by the way. interesting point about the endgrain that was made. poplar might be a little open grain for a smoth end but as im sure you know after you stain the end and befor clear coat if you burnish it will close the endgrain for life haha.

    Hot damn those look pretty and very nicely installed. If you use spades, you will definitely be able to torque them down tight enought to keep them in place.
