Nice one, great to see all the Australian timbers used on this build. How's the sound?

I really like this colour combo Jim!
The stained Silky Oak pairs well with the wild She oak F/b & bridge, while the Bunya top tones it all down, & what a great idea in the green purfling to accentuate the Paua & Pearl shell rosette, Love that feature!
If I may, what stain did you use too enhance the Silky?

Good build !

Thanks Gents,
I'm really happy with the sound, I tried to take my time voicing the top so I'm thrilled it turned out like it did.
The stain is Colortone tobacco brown from Stewmac.
