That's a tough call!  The apple on the last bow you built looked amazing, however, the cedar looks awesome with the knots and will give good contrast.  I vote cedar as well but it's a close race!

I’m personally digging the cedar, but either will look awesome.

The last walnut I stabilized gained quite a bit of weight.I think it got some resin all the way thru but seemed more on the outside. I have some Claro vacing now for 48 hrs. They are saying let it soak for a week or longer after releasing the vacuum. we will see. I was concerned that if the wood still floated after vac that it was not penetrated. The founder of the juice said float or not does not matter. Some woods will not and some will depending on specific gravity of that wood.

I have picked materials for trade bow.
Handle is straight pieces of Purpleheart and Courbaril with some overlay on back.
Limbs is Walnut lams with .0015 taper, Uni-Weft, Bjorn clear glass, Purpleheart wedge and Linen Micarta tip reinforcement.
Nothing extraordinary, but I have used this combo before and it makes a nice shooting bow.

They are location pins for marking to cut in two. and the main jig has pins also for locating the pieces for grinding.

Veneers, I guess they could be used for something.
