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.
