Quick Overview

Our Thin Canadian Maple is manufactured from prime grade hardwood timber and sanded on one face. The timber is supplied in random lengths, which vary depending on stock availability at the time of manufacture.

Please note: The timber is sawn and then sanded on one face only and is not machine planed. If you require fully planed, square edge timber please see our range of Planed All Round Canadian Maple. It is normal for thin wood to display a slight curvature across the width due to the natural movement of the timber.

Our thin Maple timber is sourced from Canada and machined to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The boards are sawn and then sanded on one face and are suitable for woodworking, furniture making, model making and crafts such as marquetry, intarsia and luthiery. The timber has a heartwood that is uniformly pale pinkish brown or light tan, the sapwood is white with a pinkish tinge. It has a typically straight grain which can sometimes be wavy or curly, and a fine, even texture.

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.
