Fairly easy to achieve good results with either hand tools or machine tools.However, when machined with high-speed cutters it has a tendency to burn. Turns well and is good for steam bending. It is good with glues and finishes well. Staining can produce blotching. Avoid by using gel stain, toner or pre-conditioner for an even color.
