Guatambu´s heartwood is nearly white, pale yellowish-brown, or cream to lemon in color, sometimes with a grayish tinge and/or darker streaks. Guatambu wood is reported to have a superficial likeness to Sugar maple or Yellow birch, but it is much harder and more elastic. There is no contrast between the heartwood and sapwood. The grain is straight, sometimes interlocked, and irregular. The texture is fine to very fine and uniform. The size and appearance of earlywood and latewood cells are relatively uniform within each growth ring. The wood has a medium luster. There is no distinctive odor or taste.


Guatambu is usually compared with Hard Maple for workability; however Guatambu is more yellow. Generally straight grain, dense with fine, uniform texture that works beautifully and even carves like a charm. Can be worked without much difficulty. Excellent turning wood. Very strong with excellent wear properties. The heartwood of Guatambu is reported to have very low natural resistance to decay. It is vulnerable to attack by insects and is not recommended for exterior applications. The heartwood is resistant to preservative treatment, but the sapwood is treatable. The species has been suggested as a viable substitute for Maple (Acer ) and Birch (Betula ) because of similarities in appearance and uses. It is reported to be superior to Maple for flooring because of its high wear resistance, but Guatambu is much harder to work and is reported to be stronger than necessary for cabinet work. The wood is also reported to vary widely in density, depending upon prevailing conditions at growth sites.


Guatambu has a low to medium resistance to sawing. The wood is reported to have good carving characteristics and is reported to nail well. Gluing and screwing properties are rated as satisfactory.
