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.

    not all the same

    it's real wood...so obvioulsy each piece is different. Some pieces are figered well, but have minor twists or crooks.
