|•||Texture moderate to fine.|
|•||It is rather difficult to work, with moderate to severe blunting effect on tools.|
|•||It exudes gummy resin when heated by dull cutters and the material is best run slowly through machines equipped with high speed steel knives.|
|•||The wood turns well and smoothly.|
