Lime wood is an even pale yellow colour, which gradually darkens over time. It also has a natural lustre and is soft and light in weight
Excellent carving properties making it ideal for shallow chip carving. Seasoned lime is very stable and is soft enough to be carved and yet firm enough to hold a precisely cut surface well. Its stable properties have also made it the favourite wood for the construction of piano boards and keys and other parts of musical instruments. Lime stains well, has good bending properties and is often used for making indoor furniture. Can be used for interior joinery such as panelling
Reprocessed as woodchip or as biomass for energy generation.
