Has anyone turned Virola?

I am looking at making some plates as prizes for winners of certain competitions in my men's group at church and was looking for something inexpensive and nice to turn. They will have engraving on the inside also. I found this at the local wood place for 3.25 bf. I guess I could always go maple for a dollar more per bf.

Thanks
Robert

Never heard of Virola! Is this a species that you have worked with previously? Chuck
