Topic tags/keywords: finishing wood combinations

I am building a small jewelry box out of tiger maple and cocobolo. I am hearing there my be issues with the cocobolo staining the maple when I try to apply the finish. Any truth to this and if so what would be the best finish to use that would mitigate or avoid the problem.
