Here's a 25th anniversary Stanaback Special in Thuya for comparison.

Your Thuya looks similar to Chief's two blocks of Chittum.

The blocks are a yellowish color with reds eyes.
Regardless of what it's called It's hard to find as Pappy stated.
I've had it call Burl & Briar, reminds me of buckeye as it has all the red eye in it.

I have heard that Chittum is a very rare wood; that it almost never burls and if so, only in very small quantity. first pic is of Chittum pistol scales.
Second pic is a custom friction folder with Chittum burl wood scales.
Third is samples from Rare Woods & Veneers in Atlanta.
(They look quite different to me, but the grain is sure beautiful.)

Wikipedia says:
"Cotinus obovatus, the American smoketree, chittamwood, or American smokewood, is a rare species of flowering plant native to Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Alabama and Tennessee. It produces pink-grey flowers in summer, and its foliage turns a brilliant scarlet in autumn; considered by many to be the most intense fall color of any tree. It is highly sought after and cultivated in botanical gardens worldwide."
