Well there you have it, and I'm sure you're decision is now made

I understand the difficulty in picking a veneer. So many nice choices. But it's hard to visualize the final product. I agree with Methos1979 in that many of the ones they show for sale on the website are quite dark under normal lighting conditions. So when making my choice I tended to avoid the nice, really well lit photographic images and focused on the shipping videos where lighting is more realistic. I ended up picking one of the Pao Ferro veneers that has a nice wide sapwood stripe down the middle and, I'm hoping, a mix of lighter browns with some dark streaks to the sides.

Of the choices you presented, I'd vote for either the Maple or Candy Stripe Padauk.

I'm sure any of them will look great!
