Pine vs Poplar
I designed and built some living room furniture last year. This was my first big woodworking project. I learned the hard way about warping and the usefulness of having the right tools. My first piece, a sidetable, now has a warped board, which happens to be part of the table top. Do I leave it and have it come off as "rustic" or rebuild the entire top? I heard, after the fact that I should have used poplar. What are the benefits of poplar vs pine? Any input would be great. You can see my ebony tanle at http://busytree.com/livingroom/.
