Calling all peeps!! Thank you all who voted and voiced your opinions the other day. This of course includes Joe, who I now know does not want to be referred to as my bro, homie, home-slice or any other gang related ‘brotha-from-anatha-matha’ terminology. What do you ask should we call him? Well .. just Joe I guess.
As I figured, the opinion of something dark was the majority. So I went through my veneer pile and pulled out some options… so here comes round 2. I am already leaning towards one of the, but don’t want to sway any opinions.
Walnut burl veneer. I made sure I did not picture the portion that looks like a doggie..
Straight grained single walnut..
Dark walnut book matched..
Dyed black veneer..
Basket weave pattern..
Ok, just kidding about the basket weave pattern…
There is also one last option, I have a friend who might have some figured spalted maple wide enough for a single panel. I will be able to see it early next week, and if we can come to terms I will post pictures of it at that time for one final round before I dive in and pick something.
If you post a comment, please also mention WHY you would pick that specific option.
