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. Common uses include flooring (from basketball courts and dance floors to bowling alleys and residential), veneer, pulpwood, musical instruments, cutting boards, butcher blocks, workbenches, baseball bats, turned objects and specialty wood items.

Purple heart urn for blog

The solemn occasion of a military funeral service is a time of great honor, dignity and respect for one who has served their country. Though a great deal of detail and tradition go into a veteran’s ceremony, one detail caught Idaho artist John Sword’s eye and he set out to change it. After experiencing his own personal losses and attending several inurnment ceremonies, he saw a need and started developing a concept for wooden ceremonial urns.
