flaws/issues: the cocobolo has a light crack that follows the grain line, but it's minor and that's just the sort of thing than happens in wood.
comments: very curvy wood outlines around the rim due to a combination of how it was glued up and how it was cut. For reasons that, as usual, I cannot totally put my finger on, I consider this one of my better efforts, with a particularly pleasing combination of woods and shape.
