    Narra  wood  is  used  for  cabinetwork;  it  is  usually  red  or  rose  colour,  often  variegated  with  yellow,  and  is  hard  and  heavy.  The  trunk  of  the  tree  is  surrounded  (or,  occasionally,  supported)  by  huge  buttresses  extending  outward  and  upward  for  about  5  m  (15  feet);  these  are  sometimes  made  into  tabletops,  the  pattern  of  the  grain  and  the  colouring  being  hardly  equaled  by  any  other  timber.  A  small  chip  of  the  wood  placed  in  water  soon  takes  on  an  opalescent  colour  because  of  a  substance  in  the  wood  cells.  Narra  wood  is  known  also  as  Burmese rosewood, Andaman redwood, and  kiabooca  wood
