Here's a picture of a Myrtle riser and two veneers.

Which veneer should I go with?

Dark veneer.

Even tho the riser is similar to the light veneers as far as light and dark.....I don’t think the tones go well together.

When dark woods take on glue they some times become so dark that you lose the looks of all the figure under the clear glass and they show up every flaw in the glass such as streaking and flecking.

Tim, I'm hoping for the best on that score.

This bow will be a test of the Bearpaw clear glass.

Dark veneers for sure.  Also, let me know what you think of the Bearpaw glass.  I've been wanting to try it, but reviews haven't been exactly stellar.
