I am doing some projects using cumaru. My question is in regards to its machining charactoristics. Does it machine well? It is very hard. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have a piece I got from a millwork shop that uses it for stair treads. Pretty unremarkable (at least what I have) looking sorta orange stuff.
Used it to make a jig and immediately snapped the screw head off in the predrilled hole. I'ts about the same as ipe - best used for boat anchors.

(did you know ipe actually sinks in water?)
