height: 2 1/2"

WOODS USED: [SEE DISCUSSION ON THE MAIN PAGE OF THIS SITE IF ANY OF THIS IS UNCLEAR]

base: mahogany

view 1: tulipwood (with sapwood), pine, ebony veneer, box

view 2: tiny oval of canary, red oak, ebony veneer

view 3: mahogany, padauk, ebony veneer, cypress, ebony veneer, box

view 4: canary

view 5: red aromatic cedar (mostly sapwood), redwood, goncalo alves, box

view 6: bocote, walnut

view 7: aromatic red cedar, pine, anigre(?), box

view 8: zircote

BOX: bottom is padauk, right side is osage orange, middle bottom is mahogany sided by bubinga and above that is padauk sided by mahogany, top is purpleheart.

flaws/issues: A very slight edge shift has occurred on the outer rim between the tulipwood in vew 1 and the zircote in view 8 plus there is a slight stress separation along the left side of the BOX. These issues have caused me to reduce the price of the bowl considerably.

The redwood in view 5 has a slight crack that can be seen on the top of the piece, but this is as much wood character as flaw.

comments: pine in view 7 has a nice little crotch/curly area on the bottom and all of the mahogany in the box is highly chatoyant (you get a hint of that in the orientation view at the top of this page).

The zircote in view 8 is so dark that it looks entirely like ebony.
