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, although 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. Grain runs with the longest dimension. USA.

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.

Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ¼" of size listed.

    Two pieces of four not too good.

    Comments about Maple, Hard 3" x 3" x 36" :

    Two of the four pieces were of the same tone. The other two were mixed with a light and dark tone of maple. I cannot use the dual-tone piece for a finished product. I will use them for other things. Next time I order I know to ask first to make sure I get the wood without the dual tone. George
