Other Uses

The heartwood is greyish to light red; it is not clearly demarcated from the very thick band of light coloured sapwood which has a yellowish tinge. The texture is moderately fine; the grain straight; the surface is lustrous; there is no distinctive odour or taste. The wood is fairly light in weight; moderately hard, not very durable, especially outdoors. It seasons easily, works well and takes a very high polish. It is used for interior finish, furniture and cabinet work[
