It has a high cutting resistance and blunts cutting edges when sawed. In general, it planes smoothly but can tear the grain when machining or sawing. A figured piece may exhibit some irregularities. The wood can also turn easily, but the natural yellow deposits on the surface make it difficult to polish or finish. Amarrillo has a moderately durable rating.
