Fine furniture and cabinetwork, turnery, decorative veneers, flooring. A walnut like wood. Yields a gum copal used in pharmaceuticals and as a base for varnishes.
Heartwood yellow brown to dark brown with gray to almost black stripes; sapwood yellow white, about 4 in wide, clearly demarcated. Texture moderately coarse, grain straight to interlocked; attractive figure, unpleasant odour when freshly cut.
Saws slowly but well for its density, works fairly easily with hand and machine tools, planes to a good finish, must be heated before slicing unto veneers. May stain when in contact with metal.
