BOX: bottom is padauk, over that are small wedges of canary topped by purpleheart topped by soft maple
flaws/issues: The mahogany in view 3 has expanded just a tiny amount and although you cannot see it at all, you can FEEL a very slight shift of the edge out away from the canary of view 1 on the outer rim.
The mahogany in view 7 has developed a stress fracture that is both visible on noticeable to the touch. Because of it, I have reduced the price on this bowl considerably ($125 to $95)
LATER: the colors are somewhat less vibrant now than they were years ago when these pics were taken but it's still basically what you see is what you get.
comments: The canary in view 1 is particularly nice, being streaked with lots of color. The African blackwood in view 7 almost looks like two pieces of wood because of the way the tan sapwood sits directly behind the black heartwood.
NOTE: the osage orange came out too bright in these images
