Description

Details

Our Planed All Round Canadian Maple has a heartwood that is uniformly pale reddish brown or light tan, the sapwood is white with a reddish tinge. It has a typically straight grain which can sometimes be wavy or curly, and a fine, even texture. The classic bird's eye form has brownish dots on a whitish background. Other kinds of decorative figuring include fiddleback, leaf, blistered and maple burl.

Properties
It has medium stiffness, is rated high in all other strength categories. The hard maples are about 35% harder than the soft maples, and are resistant to abrasion. It is rated as satisfactory for glueing and polishing, and requires pre-boring for nailing and screwing.

Typical Uses
Furniture, musical instruments and interior joinery. Because of its resistance to abrasion, hard maple is suitable for heavy-duty flooring and is used for roller-skating rinks, dance floors, squash courts and bowling alleys. It is also used for butcher's block, rollers in the textile industry, sporting goods, casks and woodenware.
