What is the weight ratio to what you know walnut to be ? Looks like it could possibly be Walnut’s long suffering light weight cousin , butternut ? Yes I have worked butternut that has a good deal of figure and movement ???

Beautiful work! The piece of [whatever] you used was a great choice – the figuring really complimented your craftsmanship.
