That is really nice looking for sure, i really do love the look of birdseye maple, esp with really deep wine colors like burgundy.
This is how they appear in my room under the diffused lights rather than using indirect sunlight or a more singular source.
Still leaning towards center-left, tbh, but its a tough choice, cuz center-right looks good too..
I've also wanted to start working on flattening out the veneer, now that I've got the supplies I need, but the weather lately has been absolutely atrocious, with constant rain & ultra-high humidity. Also, with the product I'm using to flatten the veneer, this process really needs to be done outside for adequate ventilation.
So hopefully things will clear up soon so I can finally get started..
