Hardness (Janka): 2345; 82% harder than Northern Red Oak.
Dimensional Stability: Excellent (change coefficient .00129; 65% more stable than Red Oak).
Durability: Dense and very strong. End-grain cut has excellent resistance to abrasion and shock.

Sanding: Plainsawn can be sanded to a smooth surface; end-grain requires #16 grit sandpaper to flatten.
Nailing: Good holding ability, but splits easily.
Finishing: No known problems.
