view 8: canary, canary, curly maple, BOX

BOX: from the bottom up; chechem, redheart, bocote, Honduras rosewood, walnut

flaws/issues: the inner piece of canary in view 8 has a wormhole in the bottom. There is a very slight irregularity in the surface right at the center of the bowl, where I did not quite fully sand down the surface, and there is another very slight surface irregularity at the yellowheart in view 5 directly above the BOX, where the surface did not turn down quite as much as the surrounding wood (this one you can't see but you can feel it)

LATER: the colors are just slightly less vibrant than when these pics were taken many years ago. In particular the bocote and the redheart in the box have both darkened

comments: the cumaru in view 1 is a particularly nice piece
