BOX: the central 2 sections are Honduras mahogany. The large slants in the middle are redheart. The lower slant is canary and the upper slant is ebony veneer
flaws/issues: none. LATER: the yellow woods have darkened considerably since the pics were taken many years ago so the bowl has a more subdued look.
comments: The two adjacent pieces of box elder in view 7 are real standouts, with excellent capture of the red streaking that is this wood's claim to fame.
I really like the design on the BOX in this one, and the strong color of the woods on both sides of it and the wenge slant under it.
