American sycamores are frequently very large. The lumber is fine cross-grained, is reddish-yellow in color, rather difficult to work, but, nevertheless, valuable for cabinet work and small articles. Sycamore is used for interior work and may be Handcraft stained or finished natural. The California sycamore is more largely used for these purposes. Being close grained, it does not require filling.
