Tatajuba is a heavy, dense and hard wood, with high crushing strengths. Pre-boring is recommended and screwing preferred during installation. Interlocking grain may cause tear-out when planning, but generally a clean finish can be obtained. It takes glue, stains, paints and varnishes well, and is capable of being brought to a highly lustrous finish.
