flaws/issues: There is an extremely light movement of some of the pieces such that if you run your finger over the flat inside, you can feel a tiny change in the height of the surface is a couple of places. This is not visible at all and does not detract from the bowl's appearance. The redheart pieces in views 2 and 8 have lost a lot of the red tint and are now a (still nice) reddish brown

comments: excellent woods throughout
