flaws/issues: due to wood movement, the glue line where view 4 joins view 5 has developed some areas where you can feel the edges. It's only visible if you know what to look for, but you can definitely feel it with your finger.
comments: I particularly like the way the BOX looks in this one. It's one of those where when I pick it up after not seeing it for a while I have to stop and think, "wait a minute ... how did I DO that?"
