Quilted Maple looks like a wavy quilted pattern when the wood is flatsawn. Woodworkers often describe the look as ripples on water. This figure is caused by a distortion of the grain pattern. These special pieces of wood are frequently used in the manufacture of musical instruments. Our billets come from one of the leading suppliers of music-grade wood to luthiers around the globe. These billets, 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 as instrument quality. The heartwood is typically a light tan to reddish brown color and the sapwood is usually cream colored with a reddish tint. Figured grain has a tendency to tear out. Tools must be kept very sharp. Reduced cutting angles can help. Quilted maple is commonly used in custom furniture, musical instruments, cabinetry, kitchen utensils, turning projects and more.
