Yes definitely use a prestain conditioner I have had good luck using poplar wood for face plates. It matches pretty good with the birch but nothing matches oak except oak. Make sure to sand everything really good before applying the first coat of anything. Finely sanded wood is the secret to a factory looking finish.
