This is African Sumac I picked up back on June 1st 2010 - http://agoodturndaily.blogspot.com/2010/06/day-287-african-queen.html
There didn't appear to be any major issues on this blank from the outside.
Now the blank has been flipped and is held in a chuck. The outer edge of the top face of the blank has started to be trued up so I can start coring. I use my live center with a 60 degree cone on it to support the other end of the blank during coring.
