Maple Flame, also known as curly maple, tiger stripe or fiddleback, is named for the flame-like wavy pattern that is the result of the wood fiber’s distorted growth. These special pieces of wood are frequently used in the manufacture of musical instruments. Our spindles come from one of the leading suppliers of music grade wood to luthiers around the globe. These spindles, while excellent examples of figured maple, have a minor defect–either a discoloration or minor pin knot–that does not allow them to be graded instrument quality. Spindles are rough-sawn and have been kiln-dried.
• Spindle size is 1-7/16" x 1-7/16" x 18"
• Rough-sawn Kiln-dried
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.
