flaws/issues: The Paduk/oak segment in view 5 has expanded just a hair and although you can't quite see it, you can FEEL the movement of the left edge. An even lessor, almost imperceptable, expansion has happened with the left edge of the redwood in view 2 and you can just barely feel it.

comments: The yellowheart in view 1 is highly chatoyant and the oak in view 8 is moderately so.

Although I like all of the laminations in this one I do regret having put the lamination just inside the rim of view 1 at such an odd angle --- I would like it better if it were perpendicular to the BOX.
