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.

When a woodworker’s mind turns to maple, it revives images of golden autumn hues, sweet syrup, and honey-colored country furniture. And why not? Fall foliage of the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) draws millions of leaf “peepers” to New England and the Great Lakes’ states each year.
Segmented bowl turnings are Ron Thompson’s favorite choice of woodworking these days. A woodworker for 35 years now, Ron began with mostly flat work including shelves and end grain cutting boards. This one below is made from Exotic Brazilian Cherry and Domestic Cherry Wood.

Rock maple. Has one knot.
I will definitely buy this again
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.
