flaws/issues: The glue line between the canary and the bocote in the BOX has a gap that shows on the surface. I can see it in the high-resolution large image of the bowl blank so I know it's not a stress separation, but I DON'T know how I ever allowed it to happen in the first place.
LATER: the colors have become much more subdued since the pics were taken many years ago. In particular, the bocote in the box has darkened substantially as has the canary
