flaws/issues: There are some EXTREMELY minor raised joints around the outer rim. You can't see them and you can barely feel them. Some of the woods have darkened just slightly since these pics were taken many years ago.
comments: The chechem in views 1 and 6 are both nicely chatoyant as is the zebrawood in view 4. The limba in view 2 is mostly dark "black limba" but has an interestingly-grained slice of "white limba" sapwood at the outer rim as you can see in view 3a below. The purpleheart in view 1 is a particularly rich color.
