I got this in a box of scrap wood that was given to me a while back. I'm thinking it may be some sort of Brazilian wood but not sure. It is a very hard wood. Its also a little darker than what the pics show. Any ideas? Thanks!

Colors and appearance look like claro walnut. The smell after light sanding should be a clue.
I have a couple pieces of this stuff. More like small blocks. I cut one in half to make two 2 1/2" blanks. Won't be grain orientated but they still look good. It did have a peculiar smell when I cut it.
