Natural Ringed Gidgee from Australia. This is a very hard and heavy wood that will be great for projects where increased durability is important. Gidgee is a member of the Acacia family so it can look similar to Koa.
This block is natural wood. It has not been chemically impregnated (stabilized). Gidgee is a hard, dense wood that is suitable for handle material without chemical stabilizing.
This is old stock wood that is suitable for use after allowing a little time for the wood to acclimate to your location.
It is common for dense hardwood burl to have hairline checks, open eyes or small voids. If any occur within your project area they are an easy fix with a couple drops of thin CA glue. Just apply ca glue and then finish sanding. A little extra work but will make for dramatic results.
