Jelutong has a heartwood color that is initially white, which darkens to a yellowish brown color with age. The grain is usually straight or occasionally interlocked and it has a uniform medium to fine texture. The wood gives off a good natural lustre. The end grain is diffuse-porous. Jelutong is rated as non-durable to perishable in regards to decay. The wood is easy to work with and it glues, stains, turns, and finishes well. There might be some gum build up that may occur on the cutting tools.
