flaws/issues: The billy webb wood in view 5 has a small knot, but that's character, not a flaw. The canary on view 4 has a separation that is obvious on the bottom but not on the top

comments: The one is particularly hefty because of the rim design, which is basically a donut that has been wedge-shaped at the outside and inside --- there's a lot of wood there. I didn't do this for the heft but rather because I really like the shape. This is the first bowl that I have done of this shape, but I like it so I figure I'll do more of them eventually. I have classified this as a "C6" type bowl, but it is a bit different from the normal C6, with NO flat surfaces on the rim, although having the general shape of a C6. It's a real pleasure to hold, and the rim woods are quite nice. The BOX, I'm sorry to say, is a bit prosaic but does contain nice woods.
