I haven't heard of it either. Being Brady, I'd be pretty sure it's Australian.
"Heartwood" is generally the term used for wood that is older and has changed colour, over time, in the center of the tree making it darker (if i remember what my shop teacher said 12 years ago). It might be a Heartwood of an existing species.
Either way - it's HOT.
Ply... but hot :P
Ps. i'm not starting up a ply vs. stave debate!!
