Moderate color variation.

Durability: Above average.

Hardness/Janka: Janka:1225; (5% softer than Northern red oak).

Dimensional Stability: Values can vary greatly due to the variety of species and ages used.

Workability: Good machining and hand-tooling qualities, and nailing. Tendency to clog paper due to high resin content; Abrasives will need to be changed frequently during sanding. Beginning with a coarse grade is recommended.
