Panamanian rosewood box.... *PIC*

>Here is a box turned from some Panamanian rosewood. In all honesty I cannot see the difference between it and Honduran rosewood. I wonder if the difference is where they are harvested. Anyway, the wood was hard, dense and cut very cleanly and polished up like a gem. I have already been chastised about the difference in the width of the lines at the join and at the top. I accidentally cut the one at the top deeper than I intended....Comments and criticisms appreciated....

Oh, by the way the box is 2 3/4" tall and 2 1/4" in diameter. Thanks for looking....
