« Part 12: Opinion poll for my peeps. Part 13 of Various shenanigans series Part 14: How I double bevel sea shells »

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.

I like the walnut because of the contrast,even though the burl is cool it makes the box have to much going on with the spalted wood and the burl.

Dark Walnut – the color seems to align with the spalting…

I vote for the dark walnut for the same reason “sras” stated. I also wanted to say the burl because it looks so cool but it just doesn’t seem to work as good as the book matched walnut.

Of these choices, I like the book matched walnut. I love the walnut burl but I agree with Jim, it gets too busy
