HEARTWOOD COLOUR: Typically a clear-cut division between the hard red-brown summerwood bands and the paler, softer pinkish yellow winterwood.
SAPWOOD COLOUR: White to yellow colour, paler than heartwood.
WORKING PROPERTIES: Machines well but difficult to work with hand tools. Bores, carves, saws, glues, moulds, planes, nails and screws satisfactorily. Stains well but caution as timber can mellow to a substantially darker colour.
