Its Mango. This tree was cut down by a friend and I took a couple of truckloads home about 2 years ago but am only just starting to make some bigger bowls from it. It is a wood that does not split easily and has a lot of grain directional change. Some of the fibers are crumbly and so its is hard to get a really fine finish but still I love the variety in the grain pattern. it is a fairly light weight wood but this bowl is rather chunky and has a substantial feel to it.
