Hello everybody, I am building a humidor for my father and when I was at the lumberyard I came across this unique piece of Bubinga that I decided would look great wrapped around the sides of the box. The board has some great figure and a very linear grain pattern that really caught my eye.
My dilemma in designing this box is what I should do with the lid. I am afraid that using the same board for the top will take away from the linear flow of the piece. I was also considering doing a panel type top with another type of wood (I am leaning towards curly maple) but again I don’t want it to be too busy.
I am looking for any suggestions or solutions from those with a more experienced eye than myself; are my concerns warranted or do you think it will look fine using just this board alone? Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!
I have attached a couple pictures to help give you an idea of what im working with.
