BOX: from the bottom; canary sided by ebony veneer sided by mahogany. Above the canary is ebony veneer under canary under wenge and will all of that having cocobolo angle off on both sides. At the top is padauk over little wedges of billy webb and at the far right and left are osage orange.

flaws/issues: in the right-middle right of the BOX, the billy webb wood wedge has an edge chipout at the glue joint with the cocobolo that is small but can be both seen and felt. The redheart in view 6 has faded to orangish brown. Some of the other woods are less vibrant now than when the pics were taken, years ago.

The mottled sapele in view 5 has an obvious gum inclusion as you can see in the pics.

comments: this is the first bowl where I have used yellowheart as a base --- it looks very good so I'll use it on more in the future.
