I received this in a gift exchange and it was marked Ironwood. It is hard and dense. Has a bad smell when you grind it. The best way I found to work it is slow speed fairly sharp belts. Finishes like glass the photos have no finish just sanded to 800. I just thought Ironwood was way darker than this. In either case it is my new favorite non burled wood. Please let me know what you think.
