BOX: the bottom is pine the above that is ash then a thin of curly mahogany then a complex inner box. On the left is aromatic red cedar then ? (dark brown), then an ash thin then the inner box and to the right of that are walnut and padauk. The inner box from the bottom up, is: sycamore, aromatic red cedar, mahogany veneer, ? (dark reddish brown), mahogany, thick walnut veneer, thick hard maple veneer, cocobolo with sapwood. The vertical pieces on the right of the inner box are (from the left): pine, oak veneer, maple veneer, oak veneer, maple veneer, oak veneer. The top of the inner box is thick cherry veneer, hard maple veneer, thick mahogany veneer, hard maple veneer, oak veneer, curly mahogany thin, pine.

flaws/issues: The pine at the bottom of the box has a small gum inclusion and a tiny dark knot. The prima vera in view 1 has minor mineral streaking on the bottom and the pirma vera in view 3 also has minor mineral streaking (very common for the species)

comments: the off-center box seems to give this one a particularly busy look.

I just LOVE that little oval of cocobolo in view 1 (shown enlarged below). This bowl sat around for a while before the UV blocker was added, so some of the woods have darkened slightly from what's shown in the pics.

The makore in view 3 is nicely chatoyant as is the bubinga in view 8. The walnut in view 5 is lightly chatoyant.
