Figured Maple Timber Blanks

Figured Maple Timber Blanks

Maple, (Acer saccharum) predominantly from Canada

The sapwood of Maple is more commonly used rather than its heartwood. Colours range from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. Grain, with a fine texture, is often straight but can also be wavy.

It can be worked by hand, despite its higher density, which is preferable as it has a tendancy to burn when machined at high-speed. It responds well to turning, glue and finishing though be aware that blotches may occur if stained.

Our Maple will be highly figured eg:  Birdseye, fiddleback, quilled etc.
