Curly Maple 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.

    Poor quality

    The board had a series of knots with light showing through, and was not very curly. Someone had to pick the piece and I'm surprised they didn't throw it away.

    Perfect

    I got these 1/4" pieces to use as edge-banding for a file cabient. Figure was outstanding. Very flat, nicely square, good edges as well. Had enough left over to make a top veneer that looks outstanding. Expensive if you think in board-feet, but saved a lot of time.
