Cutting: A tough hardwood that you wouldn't want to cut by hand. You'll
need a circular saw / chainsaw or powered saw to cut these sleepers. Start
off with a new or sharpened blade, and be prepared to re-sharpen.
Attaching / Fixing: Timberlok screws can successfully be used to fasten
these sleepers together, although you may need to drill a pilot hole first.
Make sure the drill is particularly powerful. This timber is tough !
