Hard Maple
WOOD TYPES:Hard Maple  

Color: The sapwood, which is more common, is almost a pure white, while the heartwood, not very common, is brown to gray.

Uses: Cabinets, furniture, interior doors, mouldings, and butcher block tops. Hard maple is used then a strong wood is needed with almost a pure white color.

Workability: Hard maples is strong and quite dense, however, it does mill and turn well. When ripping, sometimes a "burning" will occur (if not ripped with a sharp blade). While hard maple glues up easily, when stained, it will sometimes "blotch". If stained with an oil-based finish, hard maple will turn yellow over time.

Plywood: Both White and Natural Maple ply are always kept in stock, usually in ¼", ½", and ¾" thicknesses. Birch ply is a good, in expensive substitute for maple ply.

Additional Info: Hard Maple is sometimes called "Rock Hard Maple". There are various types of Figured Hard Maple, all which have unique figuring/characteristics: Curly (Fiddleback, Tigerstriped, and Flamed) and Birdseye. Both Curly and Birdseye Maple are kept in stock.
