Thanks for your input everyone! What threw me off was the extreamly high weight and density. I ve got some genuine mahogany but this is much, much heavier than that. I ve never worked with any African Mohogany though. I ll post better pictures of the grain after I figure out how to plane/cut it. It s much too large and heavy for my bench top12.5in planer.

Jatoba / Brazilian Cherry is my guess. Endgrain pic would help
