It is going to be the base for my recent amp build. It is very heavy and quite hard. Took a lot to cut and sand it to where it is now.

I could kick myself for not cutting just a little longer. Oh well, it is what it is.

The white balance in the images was accurately set manually, so the color is spot on.

Might be Ipe ... used for, among other things, decks for trailers. Re-decked a heavy equipment trailer at work once - the stuff is truly hard and heavy. I'm just glad we left it rough

Could be Ipe. Maybe Jatoba. Definitely looks like something meant for exterior use as a deck bpard.

Glad you asked. I had a piece just like that for a while I got in a random pile of scrap wood. Looked nice but I never did figure out what it was. Guess it was Ipe.
