    Viewers choice

    I'm doing a bunch of mills for a commercial client. Have a nice cherry blank with a cool design opportunity. Can fill it with turquoise or red coral. What say the collective?

    Would look nice with either, but I'm voting for the red coral.

    Black epoxy.

    Personal preference, but I think turquoise or coral would make it look hokey. (I know a lot of folks would strongly disagree with me on that, though.)

    I agree with Vaughn.

    The epoxy will blend right in, and give a natural appearance. The coral or turquoise would look a bit garish to me.

    Actually, you wouldn't even have to dye the epoxy. The dark occlusion in the cherry would provide the dark appearance for the epoxy.

    I agree...although adding pepper like Ed Thomas suggested sounds kinda cool too!

    If they were going to the eastern part of the US I'd say red. We don't much like the the turquoise look. Except for the weird guy ( we call him "hopalong")who lives in the town next door that wears a cowboy hat and boots and has a pick up truck with cow horns on the hood, But you western folk seem to put it on, in, and around everything
