view 1: poplar diagonal in a lamination of badi over holly veneer over African blackwood over yellowheart. The blackwood and yellowheart are backed by aromatic red cedar veneer then birch(?). Then all of the preceeding is backed by chechem, aromatic red cedar, maple veneer. Then wedges on each side of the outer lamination are both American black ash.
view 3: bocote, chechem, mahogany
view 5: bubinga over macawood both backed by makore and all of it over Honduras rosewood. The wedges at the sides of the bubinga/macawood are both santos mahogany. The whole section is backed by maple veneer.
view 7: vertical lamination backed by fir then Honduras rosewood. The lamination is, from the top down, redheart, wenge, holly veneer, wenge, curly maple, purpleheart, yellowheart, wenge, thick birch veneer, thick mahogany veneer, thick birch veneer, wenge
flaws/issues: the bottom of the poplar diagonal in view 1 has crushed end-grain, which feels slightly rough to the touch. There is a very small chipout in the santos mahogany on the right of view 5
comments: The bocote in view 3 is a real standout
