Sapele is a possibility but I discounted many reddish woods because they darken or turn more reddish with age while the mystery wood appears to have lightened, I should have taken a picture of an unsanded piece but you can get an idea looking at the center of the 2nd pic where the wood is cupped. Didn’t notice any gold flecks.

I believe this is much harder than Lyptus which also darkens with age. Santa Maria appears to be a very open pored wood.

Thanks for the Hobbithouse link, great resource.
