view 8: yellowheart, walnut, wenge, BOX
BOX: lower segment is yellowheart and on both side of that are padauk segments. Upper segment is curly maple and on both sides of that are shedua segments.
flaws/issues: the canary in view 1 and the padauk pieces in the box have all darkened noticeably since the pics were taken many years ago but it's still basically what you see is what you get.
comments: very nice color-contrast throughout on this one, I think, and the near-symmetry works quite well.
The jagged grain pattern in the padauk segments of the BOX is one that I find particularly attractive. It's not terribly rare, but also not all that common. I look for it any time I'm buying padauk.
