A pale yellow-coloured wood, with a fine, even texture and is straight grained. Very stable. Acid resistant.
Seasoning: Dries easily and without undue degrade.
Working: The timber is easily worked and finishes excellently. It glues well but does not take a stain well and should be paint finished instead.
Uses: High class joinery, boat building, cabinet work and veneers.
