BOX: bottom up; wormy red oak, ebony veneer, paela, ebony veneer, yellowheart, partridgewood. Slanting off from the paela is redheard and between the redheart and the yellowheart above it is ebony veneer. In the lower left and right corners is basswood with ebony veneer above it.
flaws/issues: The wormy red oak in the box was used deliberately and I consider the worm holes to be wood character, not a flaw, else I would not have used that oak.
comments: Really outstanding --- definitely one of my better efforts.
The yellowheart in the BOX is nicely chatoyant and the redheart in the box is just outstanding. The sapele in views 2 and 8 are from the best piece of sapele I've ever owned.
