Nice looking sticks, Randy. (This one and the red maple one) Did you find the poplar quite soft? We don't have it up here except where planted as an ornamental.

We do have something referred to as poplar (or "popple" to most people, including me) which is actually a quaking aspen. Very soft stuff, only good for pulp and beaver food.

Good looking knob stick Randy.

I think it depends on the poplar. I have three sticks of it. One is pretty hard and dense, One is sort of in the middle and the last one is pretty soft and light. It makes a good hiking stick because it is so light.
