Jarrah has a heartwood that ranges from a light red or brown to a darker brick wood color that tends to darken with exposure to light. The sapwood is a pale yellow to pink color. The grain is interlocked or wavy and it has a medium to coarse texture. The end grain is diffuse-porous. Jarrah is rated as very durable in regards to decay. The wood is difficult to work with because of its high density and interlocked grain. It has a moderate blunting effect on cutters. The wood turns, glues, and finishes well.
