Figure: An even straw yellow color.
Texture: Ultra fine and uniform.
Properties: Dense and hard, finishes to a polished surface. Excellent machining properties. The wood will hold a clean sharp edge. Working with hand tools or carving tools is slow going because of the hardness of the wood.
Uses: For all aspects of mofel work from fine turned pieces to timbering. A little stiff but, with some care, the wood makes nice looking planking.
