im going with some kind of koa
I am gonna guess Madrone Burl.
umm no idea so I will go with something off the wall, how about fossilized redwood. Maybe you don't have to stabilize it.
That's definitely some of that wierdo maple you got in.
"The Buddha resides as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain."
Seeing as maple has gone i'll go Afzelia burl
I'm going with Willow wood. Random but possible.
