Padauk and color ()

Back when we thought we were selecting a matching wood for the top I was wondering if the match to what the wood became was important , and not how it started out.

I am forever amused by novices extoling the virtues of air dried walnut for it's XXX fill in the blanks romantic description of "fresh" walnut color. It doesn't last long in the sun. For some reason even the brown fades to an ugly yellow-brown under lacquer.
