flaws/issues: The wormy red oak in view 4 was used deliberately, as I consider this to be wood character, not a flaw.

LATER: the yellowheart in the box has darkened just a bit and the redheart in view 1 has faded to red-brown

comments: I was so enamored of the curve of the inside of bowl #B214 that I did another one just like it almost immediately. Here's what I said about B214 (applies to this bowl as well except about being the first such): 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.
