SchwinnParamount: I don't know the real name for it but will look it up. It looks more like canarywood without the red stripes but no oil to it and is harder. Tougher than teak with no oil but not as hard as bloodwood, cocobola or purpleheart. Very close grain so it planes off like glass. It is heavier than oak. I guess now I have to correct an oversight, a cruel twist of fate, and build an 11X14 Agfa/Ansco field camera.

and search for 'brazillian'. I've never been burnt on wood from ebay sellers but the shipping is a killer.
