Hi JLMCDANIEL,

The wood is rough cut poplar I purchased from Woodcraft. Expensive stuff. I ran it through my jointer, planner, table saw, and router. Then I sanded finished product with 120 grit paper. Te lumber appears to be well cured (at least it doesn't feel wet and is not excessively heavy). Also, no moisture is evident throughout the milling and shapping process.

Am I missing anything?
