Figured Maple is prized for its beauty. The “Figure” can be quilted, flame, tiger, curly and fiddleback. These special pieces of wood are frequently used in the manufacturer of musical instruments. Our billets come from one of the leading suppliers of music grade wood to luthiers around the globe. These billets, while excellent examples of figured maple, have a minor defect either a discoloration or minor pin knot that does not allow them to be graded instrument quality. The heartwood is typically a light tan to reddish brown color and the sapwood is usually cream colored with a reddish tint. Fine, even texture with a curly grain pattern ranging from tight fiddleback to wavy. Figured grain has a tendency to tear out. Tools must be kept very sharp. Reduced cutting angles can help. Figured maple is commonly used in custom furniture, musical instruments, cabinetry, kitchen utensils, turning projects and more.
