COLOR: heartwood is a pale light brown sometimes with darker streaks and sometimes with a faint reddish tint, sapwood is creamy white
GRAIN: straight, fine and even to the point of being unnoticeable, although it is not 100% uniform and even good pieces may contain an occasional small knothole or brown streak. Side rays can be very attractive and much like those of hard maple (sometimes identical) but end-grain is almost nonexistent.
TEXTURE: medium, very even
PROPERTIES / WORKABILITY: light, moderately soft, weak to medium in strength. Machines well and the lack of a strong grain pattern means that it takes nails and screws very well with little danger of splitting, but the softness means it does not hold nails and screws well. Its Uniform density leads to low tendency to chip or split when using power tools, but there is some tendency to rip or crush under the pressure of a cutting tool and sawing produces a woolly surface. It glues very well and can be sanded to a good smooth finish. It works very easily with hand tools and is a premier carving wood.
