    I don't envy you guys... I couldn't pick either!

    All of these wood samples were from my shop, scaled correctly, as accurate to colour as I could make em. But obviously the end result will be slightly different based on that particular block of wood. The cocobolo is especially variable between blocks, some have straight grain, others have wild grain... all different shades from orange, red, brown, black...

    Yeah, those are some nice woods! I know the padauk is supposed to turn a darker reddish-brown with age, but that would match the sleeve better, so I'm cool with it. I'm having a hard time choosing between 1 and 3... guess I'll have to sleep on it.

    @KawaiiOppai Thanks for producing the sleeve design tool, might be a big ask but any way of implimenting the various wood choices available into that as well?

    @Dan Morrison Thankyou for those Dan some of those wood combos look amazing! Can you supply dimensions of the unit please so I/We can scale some papers to a body ourselves, might save you a bit of work too

    The more I look at this design the more I like it. It's really loud, definitely will stand out.. And I'm not sure if it really captures the "heirloom" aspect of such a premium device.. People with the clean/reserved sleeves have the right idea there.

    But anytime I start thinking of a different configuration this one pops back into my head. :shrug:
    Guess it just really wants to come home with me..

    I didn't get in on the first round, and thought maybe seeing all the mockups of different woods and sleeves would make the decision easier when my time comes up. I think I was wrong... all the choices shown here are so beautiful it is still going to be difficult. I would be ecstatic to own any of these combinations.

    @Prolusio, haha. that Orange/Yellow on Red design is definitely loud. I've mocked up a few more with that orangey-red sleeve. IMO, not my aesthetic, but people seem to be intrigued by it!

    Alright, here are some rough standard wood paper mock ups from that great site put together (think they may be mis sized though, so not exactly how they'd look, but an idea at least):

    [​IMG]

    Now a few of my previous requests, but self edited for Padauk and Abalone, including this one with cherry collar:
    [​IMG]

    And this which may be the leader for me right now actually, if I can afford it:
    [​IMG]

    Could just go with walnut collar maybe:
    [​IMG]

    And now @Dan Morrison for the requests, apologies if this is too much, but would like to see all these (mostly chiyogami) with Padauk body and Abalone button,

    ...these with blackwood stem collar:

    [​IMG]

    057
    [​IMG]

    Katazome 188
    [​IMG]

    Finally I'd like to see these last few with the standard walnut body and padauk collar, along with the abalone button (not sure I will be able to resist that option, despite the added cost):

    265
    [​IMG]

    817
    [​IMG]

    Katazome 101
    [​IMG]

    334 (vertical, the others should be too)
    [​IMG]

    PHEW! Hopefully that is the last of my requests and enough for me to make a decision. Choices are great, but clearly for some of us they involve a lot of work :rolleyes::lol:

    :freak: This is getting to be very difficult, in a very good way.

    So many great choices, I don't even know what to request I'm just soaking it all in.

    I still like the CHIYOGAMI 638 pattern a LOT but I think the burl's too busy for it after seeing them mocked-up together; maybe I could see it with different wood? It does look fantastic with that abalone button.

    These recent submissions aren't making my decision any easier :disgust: :D

    These three seem to stand out for me atm:

    Quoted from the original Niomad thread:
    Yes Sir, I believe they're ALL lucky numbers.

    I'm having a difficult time making my choices. I've asked Dan to mock up two more combinations, then I'm going to pick one and go with it. Definitely going with the Cherry Burl for the body though, unless I choose African Blackwood.
