Curly Hard Maple Lumber

Curly Hard Maple can be identified by its creamy white color and its reddish tinge. It usually has a straight grain but can sometimes be curly or wavy. On plain surfaces, its fine brown growth rings give it a very attractive and desirable figure for woodworkers and craftsman alike.  It is also referred to as tiger maple in antique furniture. The heartwood of a curly hard maple tree varies from light to dark reddish brown. And depending on where it is grown, the amount of darker brown heartwood can vary significantly.  Both the sapwood and the heartwood can contain pith fleck. The wood has a close fine, uniform texture and has good strength properties. It is also highly resistant to abrasion and wear and has good steam-bending properties. Some of its main uses are for furniture, paneling, flooring, ballroom and gymnasium floors, work tops and table tops, kitchen cabinets, butchers blocks, kitchenware, millwork: stairs, handrails, moldings, and doors and toys. Hard maple is a standard wood used for cutting boards since it does not transfer any taste to food and holds up exceptionally well. The hard maple tree is the state tree of Wisconsin, Vermont, New York and also West Virginia. Curly Hard Maple has been a favorite of American furniture makers since early Colonial days.

This was a first time ordering online for me, and I was nervous not having seen the material first hand and not having a prior track record with CR Muterspaw. But I’d say that I’m definitely pleased with the lumber and the whole process of working with you guys. Thanks for the great lumber and it was a pleasure doing business with you.


It has been a real pleasure to deal with Chad. Friendly, helpful, and you can take as long as you need to sort for just that right board. Just finished a cedar chest with wood I got there, and the wood was really super!


I have been to and purchased from Muterspaw Lumber. Chad is a very nice and honest man. If you get a chance stop in and see his stock and meet Chad. You won't be disappointed.

I have stopped in three times and purchased lumber twice. Each time I felt very welcome and encouraged to browse and sort through your stacks until I was satisfied with my selection. I have purchased lumber in various Ohio locations for my projects for more than 40 years. And I must add your price, quality, not to mention properly stored horizontal FLAT lumber is the best to be found.
