comments: The chechem in view 7 is spectacular, the mahogany in view 3 is unusually nice, the outer cocobolo in view 8 has a wonderful grain change, separated by a thick black band that looks like thick ebony veneer, the purpleheart in the box has nice ray flakes as does the black ash in view 2. Many of the woods around the outside of the rim exhibit excellent chatoyancy
