Hard Maple Wood
Botanical Name: Acer Saccharum
Average Dried Wt.: 18-22 kg/Cft
The sapwood of hard maple is mostly used rather than its heartwood. Its color ranges from almost white to an off-white cream, and sometimes with reddish or golden tone. The heartwood has a dark reddish brown color.
Generally the grain is straight, but may be wavelike. Has a fine and even texture.
Easy to work with machine tool and hand. Hard maple has a tendency of burning while being machined with high-speed cutters. Glues, turns & finishes well. But, blotches can arise when staining. A pre-conditioner, toner or gel stain may be required to get an even color.
Non-durable to perishable, it is susceptible to insects attack.
No distinctive odor.
This wood variety is not listed in the CITES Appendices, or in the IUCN Red List.
