BOX: bottom is prima vera (might be obeche) sided by dark cocobolo. Above that is bocote sided by yellowheart. Above that is purpleheart (brownish color) sided by sycamore, and above that is redheart. All of the dark black lines are double thicknesses of ebony veneer. Upper left slant is sapodilla, upper right slant is canary.

flaws/issues: the osage orange in view 5 has a small void on the left side where it joins the silky oak. The canary in view 5 has a very slight stress separation along one edge which is not visible but can be felt if your run your hand around the rim.

comments: I really like the way the ebony veneer in the box sets off the other woods. The canary in view 5 has nice red streaks and the imbuia sapwood in view 3 has a very attractive grain pattern. Several of the woods in this one are nicely chatoyant including the imbuia in view 3, the shedua in view 1, the canary in view 5, the chechem in view 2 and the both the osage orange and the bubinga in view 8 and several others.
