The lamination on the left is, from the bottom up; bocote, maple veneer, bocote, maple(?), iroko, 2 layers of holly veneer, bocote. The lamination on the right is, from the bottom up; cabreuva, iroko, curly maple, 3 pieces of Honduras rosewood (pretty much looks like a single piece), mahogany, Honduras rosewood.
flaws/issues: none. LATER: some of the woods have darkened noticeably since these pics were taken many years ago and while that still leaves it as a very attractive bowl, I have reduced the price from $110 to $95.
comments: The bocote/lamination in view 1 is a real standout and the high-ring-count fir in view 1 has a particularly attractive swirly grain due to some small branches entering the wood at that point (a couple of these show up as dark spots).
The chechem in view 8 is highly chatoyant and the yellowheart in view 5 is nicely chatoyant as are several other woods in this one.
