cr1, Thanks for suggesting the obvious. I had just passed it off as not very interesting looking in the rough and assumed that the good stuff was nearer the outside.
I did as you said and this is what it looks like:

The usable area if sliced into veneer would only be about 4” x 6”, but I could get maybe ten slices.
On the other hand, there are two, maybe three turnable chunks.
Still looking for guidance.
