I’m building a side table out of African Mahogany (G&G design). And I wanted to use a different type of wood for the apron. What is a good fit for it? I thought of spalted maple but I think it would look too busy.

And how do I post a picture here? I wanted to show my A. Mahogany.

Thanx

I guess only in the comment section could I find an image linky.

I agree with the maple, either figured or BE. I have been aquiring some ribboned mahagony and quilted maple to make a frame and panel craftsman king bed. Its going to take a lot of wood and time resawing. Its only a project or two away, getting excited.

BC,
What is the dark ribbon between the two?

I’ve used accents of walnut in the past with a humidor that i thought looked quite nice. It’s more subtle than the maple so it depends on what you are after.
