Actually by the request of the person I built it for it was made from poplar, not my choice, not my pref.
The person I built it for wanted a special mix of stain for some reason, also not my pref.
She changed her mind on it so much I can't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure it was minwax jacobean, and ebony mix, 3-1
I usually rec going w/ a stock color for easy touch ups later, dark walnut probably would have given similar results.
