Ipe, or Ironwood is amazingly hard and durable stuff. It is usually used for exterior decking for houses as it, like teak, stands up well to the elements. Ipe also looks a bit like teak. As Dan suggests, because of its hardness you will need extra blades and bits when working with it.
Another good choice would be Mahogany.
