WOODS USED: [SEE DISCUSSION ON THE MAIN PAGE OF THIS SITE IF ANY OF THIS IS UNCLEAR]
base: Honduras mahogany
view 1: redheart, poplar, sapele, BOX
view 2: white oak, purpleheart, yellowheart, BOX
view 4: billy webb wood, wenge, zebrawood, BOX
view 5: silky oak, Honduras rosewood, BOX
view 6: padauk, fir, BOX

BOX: on the left side is yellowheart then Honduras rosewood and to the right of that, from the bottom to top, is silky oak, machiche, redheart.
flaws/issues: The fir in view 6 has edge tear-out where it meets the silky oak of view 5 inside the rim. There are a couple of raised edges that are invisible but you can feel them (lightly)
comments: The redheart in the box has ray flakes, which is not all that unusual in redheart, but not all that common either. The zebrawood in view 4 has an unusually widely spaced grain pattern on the top (but not on the bottom) --- I think it was cut next to the sapwood.
