Hard to tell without a pic at least lots of exotics from Central America, Africa , Australia etc. Could be Ebony, Teak, Cocobolo, Blood-wood,Purple Heart, Padauk, or one of the Australian woods such as Gidgee.

He wanted Dave to guess , but couldn't do...... can anyone guess??? Wild guess, shot in the dark.... Very heavy and very dark in color :D

Some wood off of Lake Michigan-?

I'd surmise--without knowing--the description--:

Bubigna--very hard, very resistant.
Teak--same--

Comeing of L."Michigan--probably off a Ships Structure--Mahogany or Teak--Oaks--Red or White--most ships made of White Oak--can you post a pic-?--Most interested--Ax.

Nope it came from the guys who were building the bridge at the zoo ... you missed my first post on it... a friend of Daves was working there and got a chunk of it to give to Dave and he also got a 5' piece for himself, he is going to make his daughter a bow. they use it to build stuff like board walks and stuff ...... Thats why they last so long
