The following is acceptable for interior use
Birdseye Hard Maple
Sugar Maple & Rock Maple
A very pale sapwood to a dark brown heart wood. The texture is very even and fine. Weight is medium to heavy. Density is hard.
Plans and cuts easily with minimal chipping.
Keeps a great edge and can be routed into profiles without any problems.
Finishes to a superb lustre. Wax will not sink into the grain, so you're better off building up a surface finish.
Furniture, cabinet making, interior trim, flooring & butcher blocks.
One of the most sought after forms of Hard Maple. It can be difficult to machine. Sanding is the key. Boards tend to run narrow for sapwood, wide unselected for color.
