BOX: upper left and upper right slants are redheart, then there's mulberry and partridgewood
flaws/issues: none. LATER: several of the woods are no longer as vibrant as they were years ago when these pics where taken. In particular, the redheart and the mulberry in the box have all darkened noticeably. Because of this color degradation, I have dropped the price of this one from $95 to $65.
comments: The mulberry in the BOX has excellent ray flakes plus an unusual dark streak running through one of the late growth rings.
I just love the nifty little oval of cabreuva backed by ebony veneer in view 6.
