Product Information:

Maple (Acer saccharum) sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker reddish brown. Fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high-speed cutters such as in a router. Turns, glues, and finishes well, though blotches can occur when staining, and a pre-conditioner, gel stain, or toner may be necessary to get an even color. Some common uses for hard maple include flooring (from basketball courts and dance floors to bowling alleys and residential), veneer, pulpwood, musical instruments, cutting boards, butcher blocks, workbenches, baseball bats, and other turned objects and specialty wood items. This stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension. USA.

  • Straight grained
  • Finishes well
  • Excellent for turning


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Comments about Maple 3/4" x 6" x 36" :

    I was a bit hesitant to buy wood sight-unseen but Woodcraft didn't let me down. This Maple was absolutely gorgeous! I was surprised with how nice it was. All 8 boards of 3/4"x 6" were perfect with no defects, knots, dings, or chips. And they are a true 6" wide which is very nice. This Maple is a creamy white with a beautiful grain. I'm in the process of making a 3 drawer nightstand with it. Loving the beauty as it slowly comes together.
