Crappy winter weather. It's cold and kind of humid, and it is taking FOREVER for the stain on the shelf to dry.

I'd bring it out of the garage and into the house, but I don't want to stink up the house.

As soon as it dries, I can sand it lightly and varnish it. Then sand and varnish again, and sand.... And then it should be ready to take into work.

The stain didn't come out the color I hoped, but it'll have to do. It's just reaffirming my hatred of working with poplar. For some reason I can never get it to stain to the color I desire. Oak? No problem. Pine? No problem. Mahogany, cocobolo, and rosewood? No problem. Poplar, one of the most commonly used softwood on the east coast? Problem.
