Depends on what you’re going for over time. I’ve used Holly on some inlay because I wanted that white color. Over time however (2-3 years), I have found that as the other woods begin to soften in color the holly stays white. Which is good if that’s what you want. On a couple of pieces I have done, it starts to look out of place and the white pops too much. I’ve had much better luck with Aspen.
