Our Rough Sawn Maple Timber is sourced from the very best sawmills in Canada. The timber is a prime grade and contains minimal knots. The wood has a fairly uniform light peach/tan tone with a pale wavy grain pattern. The boards are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory giving an average moisture content of between 9-11%.
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.
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.
