Need name sign ideas

Whats your go to font and wood?
I want to make a small name plate for my friends desk and no idea what font to use, or what type of wood etc. He works at huge company dealing with really really wealthy clients so it has to be something worth showing off.
This will be my first wood project and first project on the xcarve. Types of wood, finishes etc just baffle me as I’m been working in metal years.

Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut Burl.
Scroll through your fonts and pick a nice one that you like.
