I am going to be making a little box for a friend for Christmas and I am
looking for a very striking wood to make it out of.
In the highly figured or exotics, what do you think is the prettiest wood?
Money is an object, so nothing over $25 a BF.
I am thinking of Cocobolo, QS AUS Lacewood, Padauk, Bubinga, Bloodwood,
Bocote, Red Gum, Highly curly hard maple or Sapele.
The box is going to be a very small simple affair, so it is the wood that
needs to be striking.
P.S. Here is a link to my closest exotic wood monger that I will most likely
be buying the wood from, they have pics of most of these woods online,
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.
