view 7: on the outsides are wedges of black ash, then in the middle left is osage orange over machiche(?), and on the right is curly maple, a tiny sliver of redheart, African blackwood, purpleheart, and then backing it all is canary, padauk veneer, BOX. The padauk veneer also runs behind the santos mahogany in views 6 and 8.

view 8: santos mahogany

BOX: top and bottom are cocobolo, on the left is sycamore and on the right is lacewood

flaws/issues: The curly mahogany in view 7 has picked up a small amount of colored dust in the areas where the interlocked grain is pointing mostly outward, and this has given them an unnatural dark-stripe effect.

LATER: the canary in view 7 has darkened a bit and the osage orange in view 7 has darkened a lot and is now a golden brown (still has amazing chatoyance though)

comments: In the cocobolo in view 3, what looks like it is probably sapwood at each end is actually not. This is one of those pieces of cocobolo that has two radically different colors, one very dark and the other much lighter, right next to each other.
