Very hard and has a dark reddish brown color. It is fragrant and close grained. It is hard to work
and takes high polish. Used in musical instruments, piano cases, tool handles, art projects, veneers and furniture.
Woodworking matters. It's more than a pastime or hobby—being a woodworker means that you know the satisfaction and pride that comes from using your hands and mind to build beautiful, functional objects, and that you're as interested in the process as the outcome. Amid the speed and chaos of the modern world, woodworking gives us a place where we can slow down, pay attention, and take the time to do things right.
