Topic tags/keywords: question traditional

In progress is a jewelry box. Mostly white pine. Five drawers 2×18wx13.5d. Overall its 19.5 wide, 15×15 d/h. Looked at 3/4 for the top but it looks massive when most of the wood is 1/2. Sides are 3/4 similar to a raised panel construction. Question: What can I used that is about 1/2 thick for the top that when finished, will look like the golden oak the rest will look like? I have not seen boards, about 10 in I could glue up for a top that are less than 3/4. What say you guys?
