Maple

Maple grows in different varieties all over the country. From ordinary straight grain to bold beautiful burl, maple has the most variety in figure of all the wood we work with. We have access to gorgeous Pacific Northwest maple as wide as 60 inches or as long as 20 feet. The warm golden cream colors over time, can develop deep red tones.Spalted maple is one of our favorites to work with. The black lines that develop over time reduce the density and structural integrity of the wood making it perfect for epoxy work where we fill in the voids to both stabilize the wood and maximize its unique figure. Maple has unique acoustic qualities, making it a perfect choice for musical instruments. Complex and interesting figures such as popcorn, quilt and fiddleback are often found in maple.
