Help me decide which wood to use for violin box
I'm getting ready for the fair!! Have several items in various stages of preparation as usual. One of the things I want to make is the the violin box from the Fall 2011 issue of SSWC. I've made it before but I want this one to be better than the first one!!
I have 3 different pieces of wood that are thick enough (1 7/8) but I can't decide which one. I've shown 2 different views.
Top to bottom, cherry, walnut, butternut

I'm not totally sure that it's cherry or walnut. Actually I don't even know where the big piece of what I think is cherry came from!! The other was given to me and I was told at the time it was cherry, but I sanded it and there is no way it's cherry. I think it's either walnut or peruvian walnut.
So what do you think would make the best looking violin???
