The left is figured hard maple and the right is plain hard maple. They will finish way different. Get some general finishes water dyes and experiment on sample stock. An amber will get you close and then tweak it if you want. Be sure to raise the grain first with water, I have my wife double check all my colors. I am partially color blind as most men are. Just do samples. Its not hard. bob
