Brush Box is resistant to decay and termites. The drying of Brush Box requires some degree of time as damage and warping has been
reported to occur when the appropriate amount of time is not taken for the process.
Brush Box can be abrasive to machine cutters and tools due to the presence of silica in the wood. Due to the high density of the wood, nailing can be difficult in this species. This species readily accepts stain and finish.
