Here we go again everyone.

This is a very hard wood with amazing grain and figure. Again, this one will have to be a specific common name as it is a large family like the previous wood listed.

Same rules as before, 1 guess per post and if you think you’re not allowed to guess you’re probably right, haha.

Good luck everyone. I hope everyone is having fun with this. I know I’m learning a lot more than possibly could have.
