The heartwood has a yellow brown colour with a bit green shade. It darkens after exposure. The parenchyma around the vessels gives it a stripy appearance. The grain is straight to irregular, sometimes interlocked. The texture is coarse.
Machining goes well, with a slight blunting effect. Pre-drilling is recommended. The finishing and gluing are reported to be good. Drying goes relatively quickly with slight risks of distortion and surface checking.
