flaws/issues: the underneath surface of the iroko in view 7 has a minor chipout at one edge and the sapeli in view 8 has a stress separation that can be felt on both the top and bottoms of the bowl but which is not visually evident on either.

LATER: some of the woods have faded or darkened since the pics were taken many years ago so the bowl is not as bright as shown here.

comments: another "busy" one with lots of laminations
