The heartwood is pale to dark brown or reddish brown, often with streaks, and distinctly demarcated from the pale grey or pale yellow sapwood. The wood works well with hand and machine tools, only moderately blunting cutters; straight-grained material planes and finishes well. The wood is easy to peel and slice, and has good gluing and excellent turning and carving properties.


In southern Africa Kiaat is one of the most generally used and most valuable timber species. The wood is used for carpentry, furniture manufacture (tables, chairs, and benches), parquet flooring and veneer.  Due to its flexibility, resistance and light weight it is also useful for boats, doors and windows.
