flaws/issues: the ebony in the BOX has a small wormhole and there is a slight lift in the bocote in the BOX where it touches the ebony

comments: Unlike the normal "C4" type bowl, this one has a smooth, continous curve from the rim to the middle, making the inside shape look like a wok. The under-rim curve is different, so the rim thickens from the edge in toward the base. It really looks neat and although this is the first bowl I've turned with this shape, I like it so much that I'm sure it won't be the last.

view 1c as the bowl blank and then as the finished bowl --- the curly maple in view 5 is not that white --- it's a reflection of the lamp
