The sapwood is a creamy white with a slight reddish brown tinge, and the heartwood varies from light to dark reddish brown. The wood has a close, fine texture and is generally straight-grained. is world-renowned for its delicate colour, hardness, fine grain and finishing quality.

Physical & Mechanical Properties :
American Hard Maple has hard and heavy wood properties with good strength properties. In particular, it has high resistance to abrasion and wear. It also has good steam-bending properties.

Hard maple dries slowly with high shrinkage, so it can be susceptible to movement in performance. With care, fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools, glues satisfactorily and can be stained to an outstanding finish, keep in mind Maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high-speed cutters such as in a router. The wood polishes well and is suitable for enamel finishes and brown tones.
