Bloodwood jewelry box

I was watching a video the other day on Woodworking-online a website run by the folks from Woodsmith Magazine. They were showing how to make cove cuts on the tablesaw, which I've seen before by a fella name Glen Huey he was showing how to make ogee bracket feet used in furniture making. But what I was intrigued by was if you change the blade angle to something other than 90 deg you end up with a asymmetrical cove cut.
Well I've had this piece of bloodwood (an exotic hardwood from South America) that I've been saving for a special project, this wood is very appropriately named.

So this is the piece with the asymmetrical cove cut
 you can see how it's different than a regular cove cut
