flaws/issues: The mahogany in view 7 has a couple of wormholes but this is wood character, not really a flaw. I knew the mahogany was wormy when I decided to use it.
LATER: a few of the colors are not as vibrant as they were when these pics were taken many years ago, but basically it's still what you see is what you get.
comments: a particularly nice set of woods in the BOX on this one and the sipo in view 1 is marvelously chatoyant and several other woods are at least lightly chatoyant
