flaws/issues: The pine in view 3 developed a stress crack on the bottom that is just barely visible on the top and the afrormosia in the BOX has developed a small stress crack which is clearly visible (see it in view 5c below) even though it is so thin that you can barely feel it with your fingernail.

In view 5 a thin crack developed at the ebony veneer. You can't see it because the ebony's black color masks it completely, but you can feel it with your fingernail (more on the bottom of the bowl than on the inside of the rim.

comments: A relatively "busy" one with several compound lamination of thins and veneer. Very nice gentle slop from the rim all the way to the center of the bottom.
