Color/Appearance: Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of Maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker reddish brown.
Grain/Texture: Grain is generally straight, but may be wavy. Has a fine, even texture. Curly Maple is not actually a species, but simply a description of a figure in the grain—it occurs most often in soft maples, but is also seen in hard maples. It is so called because the ripples in the grain pattern create a three dimensional effect that appears as if the grain has “curled” along the length of the board.
Rot Resistance: Rated as non-durable to perishable, and susceptible to insect attack.
Millwork (sanding, prepping) and Finishing (staining, sealing) available on request.
