The Workshop: "slow and steady progress" 10

Now that the lid is strong and stable (ribs in place with hidden screws) it is time to cut inlay. And this is where you come in.

I have ancient red pine from cast-off shelves out of a historic store in Old South (Lamont's Antiques). Both sides of the wood (the dusty outside and the inside of a 4-inch slab, 1/2-inch thick) appeal to me.

What looks best with 800-year-old cedar?
