This wood is used mostly on out door projects, it belong to the teak family. It would make some great out door furniture or decking. Don't try and dry it to a low moisture content because it will become very brittle and crack when it absorbs the heat from the saw blade. The next problem you'll have is trying to keep its beautiful color on it once it's exposed to the outdoors. It will gray very fast but will hold up for years due to its density.
