Holoptelea grandis of the family Ulmaceae. A relatively obscure African wood, rarely seen in the USA and not, to my mind, particularly worth searching after. It is medium weight, moderately soft, works easily and glues well but is not particularly attractive.
several small planks sold to me as kekele with no botanical designation but I believe they are Holoptelea grandis
