BOX: corners are walnut, upper and lower segments are a lamination of ash and walnut, and the middle is walnut with diagonals of red oak

flaws/issues: upper left box corner walnut has a thin crack that really just looks like a dark grain line.

The pine to the left and right of the box both had substantial stress separations from the walnut of the box so I re-turned the bowl and refinished it. The separations are still visible but they are smaller than they were and now they are filled with glue. There is a slight ridge at each where the glue expanded just a bit after I put on the finish --- you can see it and feel it). These are much more minor compared to the major separation that existed before I re-turned it, but the bowl is still flawed and I priced pretty low because of that.

comments: This one is symmetrical about a line from view 1 to view 5, and I didn't actually mean to do that --- I don't much like total symmetry and I usually remember to break the symmetry in blanks that I start off symmetrical but on this one, I forgot.

The partridgewood looks black in the pics but it is really a deep dark brown with visible grain lines if you angle it right in a bright light.
