What does the Janka hardness number mean?

The Janka hardness number is a measure of a wood’s hardness and its ability to resist denting.  The higher the Janka number, the harder the wood.  The test measures the pounds-force (lbf) required to embed a .444 inch steel ball to half its diameter in the wood being tested. Learn more here.
