"My thought is that I will mix the Makore with Jarrah. It should compliment each other really well as the tonal colours are the same brown-red."

I have one piece of Jarrah. Makore is a question mark. Looking at googled images I can only think: Same color. One stock is from one tree, and the other from another tree which is a different genus. So, what is different becomes a critical contrast. Texture? Grain? If everything is the same, but off, are you simply saving money?
