DESCRIPTION:   Light tan heartwood typically has a straight grain, occasionally with a wavy appearance running through it. Lustrous. Cedar-like scent. Medium to coarse texture; but in heavier grades, it is fine textured. Due to its silica content, its blunting effect on tools can be severe. To prevent chipping out, adequate support is needed. Very good to polish. Used for furniture, cabinets, light construction, high-class joinery, and utility plywood.


1 Durability refers to a wood's resistance to rotting in wet environments.
