I’m not sure what this is. Beautiful but unknown. Sorry the picture is not great. The veneer has a orange brown color to it. Thanks guys

All I can think of is curly redwood but its a wild guess

Does it have a scent?

The first thing that came to mind is Bubinga Pommele.

Redwood. Some mineral spirits on a small section will show the color more accurately.

That picture does not do it justice. Rory of Rare Woods USA is going with water fall bubinga.

It’s definitely waterfall bubinga. I have a few pieces as well.

Certainly wood, who I purchased it from also calls it Kewazinga
