Bilinga wood with recognized FSC® quality mark
Bilinga wood is well machinable
Despite the great hardness, Bilinga wood can be machined quite well. Due to the strong crosshair, a small rake angle (10 degrees) must be used when machine planing to obtain a smooth surface. The hardness means that when processing dried Bilinga saws and chisels dull quickly.
