Topic tags/keywords: joining question

I would like to accentuate the look of/ get a bit more fancy
in a project by mixing two different types of wood in a glue-up.

If I look at things logically ;), I think it should not be a problem
if wood grain of all pieces is “lengthwise” and one type of
wood is glued up as main and widest piece in the middle and the
second wood is glued on each side of the main piece.

Any experience/pointers where I can find out more ?

it doesn’t matter the order, but that matters is the density, make sure both woods are in the same range of density, there is a chart somewhere of this site with those densities.
