ITANNIN

botanical name unknown

This wood was sold to me under the common name itannin, but I cannot find that name in any reference and I have no clue what species it is. The only other image I could find was copied from this page, so no help there.

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting --- colors will vary under other lighting conditions


two turning sticks


end grain of the pices directly above


end grain closeups of the pieces directly above --- the pics are too gray, should be more brown


END GRAIN UPDATE from directly above


both sides of a plank with the first pic showing an untouched side with age patina and the second pic showing a freshly cut face with a pinkish tint.
