After I finish this bathroom remodel... several weeks away the way things are going... I plan to build a new headboard and bed. The dressers are all a very light natural birch. Now I don't have a lot of birch handy, but I can get enough poplar to do this.

#1 Do you think poplar is a good choice for building a bed and
#2 Is it possible to get a finish on the poplar that will pretty closely match the birch?
#3 I haven't worked much with poplar. Does it take stain well?

If I can't get a finish that's extremely close to the birch, then I'm going to go for contrast. Not real dark, but when you look at it you'll know it wasn't MEANT to match the dressers.
