Other Uses

The heartwood is brown, highly veined with alternate dark and light coloured streaks; it is clearly demarcated from the 10 - 15cm wide band of sapwood. The texture is medium; the grain straight or interlocked, sometimes oblique. The wood is moderately heavy; moderately hard; elastic; moderately durable, being resistant to dry wood borers and fairly resistant to fungi and termites. It is somewhat slow to season, with only a slight risk of checking or distortion; once dry it is moderately stable in service. It works fairly well with ordinary tools, though there is a risk of distortion in maching, especially planing; nailing and screwing are good, but require pre-boring; gluing is correct[
