Maple, Birds Eye 1/8" x 5" x 24"
Bird's-eye maple (Acer saccharum) is so named because the figure resembles small bird's eyes. Bird's-eye figure is a phenomenon that occurs within several kinds of wood, most notably in hard maple....
- Distinctive "eye" pattern
- Finishes well
- Dimensioned lumber
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.

Birds Eye Maple Pickguard
Bought this to make a pickguard for a project bass. Cut this piece in half and was able to glue together without having to use a jointer. Made an invisible glue joint for a beautiful pickguard. I have to really look for the joint and I know where it is.
Perfect for Inlays for Boxes
I bought this piece of birdseye to use for inlays. It gets no better with the right contrasts. It would have gotten a 5 except for a few planer lines which sand out easily. Great stuff at a great price. Byrdman, SLC,UT
