      The last picture looks like bocote wood. I have some and it runs about $18 a foot. I buy every wooden cigar box I can find or other wooden boxes. I use a quill tip wood burner to put a design in them which I do with carbon paper then burn it. It turns a $3 box into $71 in a week on eBay. Fly fishing images on the top are really a big hit. The wood you have here won't burn well because it is too hard. Nice looking find though.
