Other Uses

The heartwood is bright reddish brown, frequently with broad lighter and darker belts; it is clearly demarcated from the 4 - 10cm wide band of whitish sapwood. The texture is rather coarse; the grain fairly straight, sometimes a little crossed. The wood is moderately heavy; moderately hard; very durable, even the sapwood is not attacked by beetles. There is a tendency to warp and check when seasoning if this is not done with care. It can be worked easily with ordinary tools. The wood is used for beams, joists, rafters; posts above stumps; flooring, sheathing, ceiling; furniture and cabinetwork[
