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. This thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried material. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension. USA & West Coast Canada.

  • Attractive grain pattern
  • Linear wave figure
  • Easy to work

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.
