Our prime Canadian Maple timber is sustainably sourced from the best saw mills in Canada and planed at our factory here in Yorkshire. The timber 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.
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.
