flaws/issues: none. LATER: the padauk and purpleheart pieces have darkened noticibly since these pics were taken many years ago and more importantly the yellowheart piece that goes through the center of the base has developed a stress crack on both sides and a stress separation on one side. Because this is all just under the nearly-horizontal lower part of the rim it does not show up and does not detract from the beauty of the bowl at all, BUT ... I hate these separations so have dropped the price from $175 to $110
comments: I particularly like the heartwood/sapwood contrast and the nice grain pattern of the canary in view 1
