Hi ibjennings,

Need a little more information.

Where did the blank come from?
Is it stained or oiled with something that has changed its color?

On a wood buying trip to Oregon I got a straight grained Oregon Walnut blank that looked similar to this. The sap wood is what I would expect from Walnut. But you say it is too heavy for Walnut.

There are so many exotic woods from South America, Japan, Hawaii and Africa that it is a hard to say. If we knew where it came from it would really help.
