view 7: Honduras mahogany backed by walnut
flaws/issues: the upper anigre strip in view 3 has a series of what appear to be small gum inclusions, as does the anigre backing in view 5. It is possible that these are rough spots due to end grain turning since both occur where the end grain came directly into the chisel.
comments: This is one of the early "dried flower holder" shapes that was intended to have holes drilled in the un-hollowed-out middle to hold dried flowers. If you would like to HAVE those holes, I will drill them and add a sealant, but it may take several extra weeks to finish it, depending on my availability to work on it. There will be no extra charge. To get a feel for what it will look like, see bowl B116.
