I’ve recently started doing woodworking for enjoyment/therapy from my day job, but recently I have taken on small projects for others as a way to fund more of my projects. I have a customer that has asked me to build them a sofa table similar to one they saw at a big box store.(see attached photo) The majority of the table will be painted and I plan to use poplar for painted parts/drawers and oak for the top. Would poplar be suitable for this or should I consider other options? Price is somewhat of a factor but customer really wants real wood vs engineered products.
