flaws/issues: There is a hairline stress separation in view 4 at the inner edge of the bocote/aromatic red cedar pair where those two pieces meet the machiche of view 3. It is hardly noticeable visually but you can feel it with your fingernail and I have reduced the price of the bowl because of it. Some of the woods have changed color somewhat since the pics were taken many years ago but it's still basically what you see is what you get.
comments: The pine/cocobolo sets in views 5 and 7 each have a nice omega curve behind them in the inner rim and also the point where they come together has a very interesting look. Numerous nice omega curves inside the rim of this one.
