Hardwood 44 lbs. per cubic foot, 3.67 lbs. per board foot
A domestic wood that grows in the North Central and Northern states. It has only limited use in boat building, mainly because it is suitable for steam bending. The wood is hard, strong, and shock resistant, which makes it suited well for small boats utilizing steam bent frames and laminated members. Decay resistance is fair at best and the wood tends to warp.
