Default Guanacaste wood from Costa Rica

Has anyone else used this wood. It is like a very wild walnut with swirls of darker color.

Here is the raw wood


and here is what I made with it


The box was not stained only finished with several coats of oil-based wipe on poly.


Be careful - this stuff has natural chemicals that are harsh to your respiratory system when you work it!

OK, I'll ask - what's IN the box? I'd love to see the inside of it.

Beautiful wood, by the way.
