All of that sided by mahogany thins and then on the left hard maple veneer then mahogany and on the right aromatic red cedar.
flaws/issues: the top of the rim on the right side of view 3 has a small indentation about 1/4" long that should have been turned off but was overlooked, and the dark brown wedge in view 8 has some very small edge chipping inside the rim.
comments: I'm not a big fan of symmetry and I've deliberately put the "box" off center on a few bowls just to see how it would turn out. On this one, I think it makes for an interesting effect but someone who prefers symmetry might find it jarring.
