BOX: bottom is osage orange and them up the middle is wenge, purpleheart, walnut, padauk, beech(?), walnut, padauk, ipe, wenge, and little wedges of pine(?)
flaws/issues: there is a very slight separation between the two purpleheart pieces at the bottom of the BOX, as you can see in the pics.
LATER: several of the woods are much less colorful than shown here, notably the purpleheart pieces, which are now a darker purple, and the paela and padauk in view 5, and the paela in view 3. Consequently, I've dropped the price a bit.
comments: the orange padauk / ebony veneer / bocote combinations in views 4 and 6 are particularly nice
