The combonation I use most often, and alot of others I have seen is hard maple/walnut. I think they compliment each other very well. I think we all agree that if it looks good to you or your customers/gift recipients, then you made a good choice of wood combination. Don’t let anyone tel you you cannot use certain combnations because they dont “look right”. There are structural reasons to not combine certain woods, but I do not believe there should be any athstetic reason not to combine different woods. As Tennessee said we wouldn’t have any variety if we didn’t try new combinations. The worst that will happen is you find a combination you don’t like, big deal you got to spend time woodworking. Best case you post something new and creative on here that inspires the rest of us to try something new and creative.
