You are incorrectly using bounded_by as an alternative for an intersection.
ANY ray that hit the bounded_by shape will cause the bounded_by object 
to be evaluated, even if that part is actually outside the bounded_by 
object. Even if that part is in front of the bounded_by shape.

Instead, you should use an intersection or add clipped_by{bounded_by}

The first will close the object. You see the surface of the intersecting 
object.
The second will leave the ends open. Adding an interior_texture will 
make it obvious.
