Hard Maple Wood

Maple_Hard (blog size)

Hard Maple is a very strong hardwood with a closed, subdued grain and a uniform texture—a beautiful and durable species for doors. The sapwood is a lovely creamy white, while the heartwood ranges from creamy white to light reddish brown. Unless otherwise specified, figuring such as curly, birds-eye, quilted, or fiddleback is slight. Due to its light color and durability, Hard Maple is a popular choice for a “contemporary” look. Because it is so dense, it does not take stain well. Janka hardness: 1440.
