In my opinion, skip stain, seal with clear lacquer and tint lacquers from there on. There are stains that functions on poplar that contains vinyl binders and bentone paste for example, but tinting lacquer is quick and simple solution.
However, there are several ways to skin a ca..eh, pretty popular poplar

It will be interesting to see what comes up here....

Ok so I pulled the first top/bottom CLD glue up out of the clamps, and I glued up the second enclosure.

BTW this is what a loaded up bar clamp is supposed to look like =)

This is what I started with after the glue dried. Notice the masking tape over the kerfs, since itís common for the flush cut bit to skim the surface, this helps protect the relatively thin top layer of the kerf

Spiral cut up cut bit by CMT, really nice cuts like a dream

I did some quick initial sanding with 80 grit, Iíll be sanding the kerfs by hand as to not sand too deep, finally starting to look like a speaker!

Little more done tonight, I started by sanding the kerfed areas, this was a little nerve racking as I didnít want to sand through, after using this technique below by hand I finally built up some confidence and carefully sanded it with 150 grit in my RO sander, that went well. I was able to almost completely sand out the kerfs but Iím not sure I want to go all the way, see images below

After finish sanding the whole enclosure with 220, I applied a 1/2Ē roundover to all top, back and bottom edges

Trick with a 1/4Ē shank bit, bury it in the collet to prevent any flex of the shaft for a smoother cut.

Barely any burning or marks, full speed and full pass, ready for a quick sand with 220

Looking great!

I have only recently discovered the wonder of spiral up-cut bits. Pure joy. Sure wish I'd known about them years ago.
