Physical Characteristics

Hard Maple is a dense hardwood noted for its sturdy bright white sapwood. Our Hard Maple hardwood comes from premier growing areas for the species which are within about 100-mile radius (62 km) of our manufacturing facilities in New York and Pennsylvania. Hard Maple is one of the hardest and most dense hardwoods. It has high resistance to abrasion and wear. It is prized for furniture, cabinets, stairs, mouldings and millwork, coffins, and flooring. It is also used for gym and basketball courts, bowling alleys, bowling pins, rolling pins, and other turnings, skateboard decks, baseball bats, billiard cues, cutting blocks, and a variety of musical instruments. Hard Maple lumber machines and glues well and can be stained or polished to a fine finish.
