Haven’t lived in Phoenix for almost 50 years, but I’m betting it’s iron wood. Looks just like the pieces I’ve been carrying around with me for almost that long. Beautiful grain. Just look at some of the Native American carvings you can find in the art stores around you. However, it’s harder than %#$&! If you are turning it, use SHARP tools and be prepared to sharpen them every 10 or 15 seconds of turning.
