Despite its extreme hardness Amara is not particularly difficult to work. Very smooth surfaces are given when planed. Sawdust should be efficiently extracted because of the risk of infiammation of the eyes and skin.
Glue joints are easy to produce and hold well. Nail joints are very difficult to produce and screw joints must be pre-drilled.
As the original Macassar has become rarer and rarer and also more narrow, Indonesian suppliers switched to this type of Macassar which offers much better dimensions but has reddish colour shades instead of white and grey shades instead of black. Today, far more Amara is used than Macassar.
