Suar, also know as Monkeypod, is the wood of the Raintree. An extremely sappy wood, it seasons into a dark brown timber, with strong contrast between the sapwood and heartwood. Favoured for its deep colour and often used for large counter tops and table tops. Not an easy wood to work with due to its irregular grain, handles well only when using sandpaper.
