WORKING PROPERTIESDifficult to saw and bore. Where severely interlocked grain is not present, the wood planes to a smooth surface. Because of its high density and oily nature, the wood glues poorly. It nails and screws well; pre-boring is necessary.
DURABILITYCumaru is very durable. The heartwood has shown to be very durable in resistance to both brown-rot and white rot fungi. The wood has excellent weathering characteristics.
SEASONINGCumaru is rated as easy to air-season with a slight tendency to check and with moderate warping; drying was uniformly rapid.
USESOutdoor Decking, flooring, cogs and shafts, heavy construction, barge and dock fenders, railroad crossties, pulp mill equipment, tool handles, bearings, turnery. A substitute for lignum vitae.
COMMENTSThe cumaru tree is cultivated in many areas for the tonka beans used as a flavoring, which have a vanilla-like flavor.
