Tamboti (African Sandalwood)
Generally fairly straight grained, medium density and easy to work. It is a bit oily but not enough to make gluing a problem.
I find it easy to machine and it looks great when polished, I haven't noticed much of a colour change with age or exposure to light. Another of my favourites.
