Jatoba (brazilian cherry) was not on his list, but would do nicely as would Santos Mahogany- both are very hard and dense.
I am not familiar with working with Eucalyptus, but shy away from thick oak boards. Laminate if you need to use oak as it often has internal cracks and/or voids from the drying process that you may never see. It is a common problem with 12/4 or 16/4 oak.
