Thanks for the help. The photos and descriptions of Lyptus and Jatoba really resemble this wood, but I found some close up photos (better than mine) the draw me closer to Lyptus. The endgrain of my wood does not compare toe the end grain of the Jatoba. I stumbled over this really great website for exotic wood. This is a lot better than the book I have. These two types of wood aren’t even shown in my Encyclopedia of Wood.

Again thanks for your help and opinions.
