flaws/issues: the outer edge of the right-hand piece of Brazilian ebony in the BOX has a tiny gap where with was not turned down all the way. You can barely feel it and it's only visible when you catch the light just right, but it IS a flaw, albeit an extremely minor one.
comments: numerous chatoyant woods in this one, including both the purpleheart and the yellowheart in view 1, the sapele in view 2, the imbuia in view 4, the machiche and the sapele in view 5, the teak and the partridgewood in view 6, the bubinga next to the BOX in both views 2 and 8, and the cowtree in the BOX.
