flaws/issues: The walnut in view 3 has some edge chipout on the inside of one edge. The walnut base segment in view 7 has a knot that is not solid, but that's really wood character, not a flaw.

comments: The tatajuba in view 3 is highly chatoyant. The ovals around the outer rim seem to me to be particularly attractive on this bowl.
