Curly Maple (Acer macrophyllum) is not actually a species, but simply a description of a figure in the grain. Curly Maple occurs most often in soft maples, but is also seen in hard maples. The heartwood is typically a light tan to reddish brown color and, of course, features a pronounced grain pattern. The sapwood is usually cream colored with a reddish tint. Curly Maple is a durable, hard, and dense wood, which carves and turns exceedingly well, and finishes nicely. Curly Maple is also referred to as Tiger Maple, Flame or Fiddleback Maple. Common uses include small specialty wood items, carvings, turned objects, decorative boxes, and musical instruments.
