Parts for Country Kitchen Antique Chairs

I need to replace some runners and a leg on what I would call typical antique, low-end country style kitchen chairs. The wood is medium dense smooth wood, very little grain, and uniform appearance. Appears to be maybe fir or poplar or beech, or the like, but aged to darker color close to walnut. I'm sure many of you have seen it before. Same as I always see in turned table legs, etc. Takes on a nice walnut color when wetted.

What to make the replacement parts of? Today's black walnut is not close and high $$. Would maybe poplar or pine be closer? Any ideas?
