Mahogany perhaps.

I am really not sure but I would call it “beautiful” wood if anyone asked me. You did a very nice job on this.

I’m not sure but some of it looks like Cherry and yet some of it reminds me of African Walnut??? When in doubt just tell someone if they ask that it’s an old piece of Beech hahaha. Just a side note, I have an old piece of Sapele that looks just like that but I doubt that’s what it is. Fantastic job by the way!!

At first glance I thought ‘hey lookee here, I like the lines.’ and then I zoomed in, wow! the detail is gorgeous! The fit looks comfortable. My favorite is the overall look, quite detailed, yet subtle at the same time. Quality piece.

The pepper smell is what reminded me of this wood….it is from S. Africa…they truly do call it sneezewood. I had a few pieces given to me to turn into bowls and what I remember the most was the smell. The color is also similar to whay you show above….and the tight grain. You can do an internet search on this….it is actually used alot in Africa and the trees are harvested for lumber.
