Soft Maple


Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood colour ranges from almost white, to a light golden or reddish brown, while the heartwood is a darker reddish brown. Silver Maple can also be seen with curling and quilting grain patterns.

Fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools, though maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high-speed cutters such as in a router. Turns, glues, and finishes well, though blotches can occur when staining, and a pre-conditioner, gel stain, or toner may be necessary to get an even colour. With a Janka hardness of 700 to 950 , soft maple is extremely useful for a variety of applications that would require resistance to denting and scratching.

Common Uses: Veneer, paper (pulpwood),  boxes, crates/pallets, musical instruments, turned objects, and other small specialty wood items.
