I have tried both ways, not sure which I like best. For those that question what I’m talking about—with Zebra wood you can cut all top grain and make your rings to either arch up or down, and if you cut side grain it will give a bulls eye effect.

When I read the title, I couldn’t image Padauk and ZW together.

You did a fantastic job merging these two radically different woods. I love it!
