My first guess would also be Jatoba, but my second guess would be Bubinga. Normally we think of Bublinga as being heavily figured but a more straight grained Bubinga exists and this may be that.

While I also think it could be Jatoba, it seems just a little more reddish than the Jatoba I have worked with. Of course, that could just be the way it was photographed.

FYI – both Jatoba and Bubinga are quite heavy.
