Jacaranda, I’m pretty sure. A set-aside from long ago. My new swan-neck hollower (never used one before) worked like magic.

Good looking Goblet Mark! Very nice grain. I never knew Jacaranda could look so good!
I tried growing a few of these trees from seed but one bad winter and I lost them all.

I like.

Jacaranda at Hobbit House Makes it look like Gum with all the colors it can be. They do show one sample that looks just like yours, with the swirls, and the pecks that I thought it was for sure QS Sycamore when I first saw it.

Thanks for posting
