Mixed hardwood is a combination of wood species that create a natural contrast in the finished piece of furniture. The woods used are typically cherry/walnut, cherry/maple, or maple/walnut. The wood finish must be the same for all of the wood (we can't stain part of a tabletop with medium finish, and the other part with mahogany finish). The finish used on a mixed hardwood table is typically clear varnish or clear oil & wax.
