view 6: walnut, bocote, sapele, yellowheart, BOX. The bocote had a hard maple thin under it and some of that remains as an arc on the bottom of the bowl.

BOX: upper and lower pieces are Honduras rosewood, as are the triangular side pieces. The jagged lamination is, from left to right, wenge, bloodwood, yellowheart, ? (dark brown wood), Honduras rosewood, East Indian rosewood, curly maple, yellowheart, wenge.
flaws/issues: the bloodwood in view 4 has a circular flaw inside the rim --- it's a little hole that went through to the canary and is right next to the small canary oval. I find it very annoying, but that's just me.
comments: lots of nice woods in this one with the tulipwood in view 4 and the bocote in view 6 being particularly nice. The white oak pieces in view 5 show their ray flakes as ovals, both inside and outside the rim, which I find very pleasing.
