My first reflex on seeing your picture was "Phillipine mahogany." Esp. the pieces on the left. Phil mahog has that distinctive yellow hue under varnish. It's not at all a true mahogany, but it shares that wood's strength and weathering properties; prone to nasty lifting splinters, tho, so keep an eye out for those suckers. Nice find!
