flaws/issues: There is a very minor hairline separation right up the middle of the box but it's only visible if you catch the light just right and it's only faintly perceptable to the touch.
comments: Some nice wood in this one but nothing really outstanding. The cocobolo in views 2 and 4 is quite nice as is the curly red maple in view 3. The osage orange in the box is nicely chatoyant and has excellent color. The shedua in view 7 is chaytoyant, but not outstandingly so and likewise the obeche in views 2 and 4.
