It was buried in a bunch of Malaysian native wood and bamboo cutting boards and all were pretty high priced for a discount store. Nonetheless this was a great find and I can't wait for the inspiration to come.
It would also make a beautiful custom piece for one lucky individual.
I cannot tell exactly what wood it is but it is very hard, like oak. It may even be a foreign wood.
If I'm ever lucky I'll get my hands on some cedar!!
