The core or 'pith' of Chinese Sumac is extremely soft. Soft enough to pick-out with a fingernail. A screwdriver also works and to go deep you can hand-turn a drill bit down through the stick. The wood is excellent for making hollow shapes but terrible in any case where you need strength in the middle, such as for the neck of a small human figure.
