I usually think Loren has a decent idea, but this time I quickly disagree. That is not wenge. The grain pattern of wenge is quite easily identified in that the grain, as it moves to being flatsawn, has little jogs in the line sorta like an EKG (see Wood Database link and look on the right side of the sample). Wenge also has large open pores that can be seen on the face of the board. The color, though not a dealbreaker, is also off quite a bit.
