Other Uses

The heartwood is reddish brown and not distinctly demarcated from the sapwood. The grain is straight or wavy, texture fine and even. The wood is medium-weight; fairly durable, being resistant to attacks by fungi, termites and Lyctus borers. It air dries slowly with a tendency to check; rates of shrinkage are high; once dry, the wood is moderately stable in service. The wood is fairly easy to work with both machine and hand tools; it can be planed to a nice surface; is fairly easy to nail and has good nail-holding capacity; it glues satisfactorily and the varnishing properties are good; it can be sliced into good-quality veneer. It is valued for house construction, bridges, scaffolding and railway sleepers, but also for luxury and mosaic parquet flooring. It is suitable for interior and exterior joinery, ship building, furniture, cabinet work, toys, novelties, boxes, crates, carvings, pattern making, turnery, veneer, plywood, hardboard and particle board[
