views 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8: yellowheart, wenge, BOX
BOX: inner segments are yellowheart, and outside that is redheart.
flaws/issues: the wenge inside the rim in view 4 developed an obvous chipout. Experience told me that attempting to turn down below the chipout was not likely to improve the situation because that piece would most likely have continued to chip out along the same edge, so I softened the edges but couldn't do much about how bad it looks. You can see it in a closeup pic down below. Too bad, to, because otherwise this bowl is really beautiful. I've reduced the price quite a bit because of the chipout.
comments: fabulous wenge grain patterns and what I feel is an excellent choice of contrasting woods.
