N40 --- $55.00 --- this is the orientation view --- more pics down below

diameter: 6 3/4"
height: 2 1/2"

finish: one application of natural stain then two coats of high gloss spar polyurethane (with UV blocker)

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

base: mahogany

view 1: makore, oasage orange over walnut, yellowheart, BOX

view 2: mahogany (? could be sapele),

view 3: goncalo alves backed by cypress

view 4: narra, pine

view 5: machiche, unknown light wood, BOX

view 6: lamination of walnut and a maple thin, then red elm, BOX

view 7: pine(?), walnut, wedge of unknown light wood, BOX

BOX: bocote in the middle and the rest is pine and thick mahogany veneer

flaws/issues: the cypress in view 3 has a very noticeable edge flaw where it joins view 2. This is due to cross-grain turning and it is VERY obvious to the fingernail

comments: I put the box off-center on purpose but I'm not all that crazy with how it turned out. Instead of looking interesting, I think it just LOOKS off-center. [Anyone ever notice what a poor salesman I am? Well, what the heck, I priced it low.]
