Candada and Eastern USA
High in all strength properties except stiffness which is medium. A difficult wood to work with a moderate blunting effect on cutting edges. Takes glue well, and stains and polishes satisfactorily.
Used for heavy duty flooring because of its high resistance to abrasion and wear. Also used for furniture and panelling, sports goods and musical instruments. Excellent for turnery.
