Overview

The classic American blonde, Hard Maple features creamy white sapwood with a reddish cast, and rugged durability. The wood has an exceptionally fine, even texture, and tight pores that yield an excellent finished surface. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about chipout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

  • Tree: May reach a height of 70 to 120 feet, with a 24 to 36 inch diameter trunk.
  • Sapwood Color: White with a reddish cast.
  • Heartwood Color: Uniformly pale reddish brown or light tan.
  • Grain: Usually fairly straight, but can also be curly or wavy. Sometimes exhibits decorative figuring like bird's eye, maple burl, blister, leaf, and fiddleback.
  • Texture: Very fine and even.
  • Working properties: Due to hardness, tools must be kept very sharp.
  • Carving: Responds well to carving tools.
  • Steam bending properties: Fair.
  • Strength Properties: Very high bending strength. Resistance to compression parallel to the grain is high. Hardness is rated as medium. It is heavy, and resists denting and marring. Hard Maple can be up to 25 percent harder than Soft Maple.

Perfect for my keepsake box project

William Posted December 9, 2014
Wood was great! Precise dimensions. Smooth plane surfaces. Square corners and edges. Bright grain pattern. No cupping or twisting. This is my third or fourth time using this lumber and I've never been disappointed.

Always Satisfied

Rick S Posted May 24, 2014
I've bought wood from Rockler about 4 or 5 times now and I've alway been satisfied with what they sent. Wood is straight, no flaws and measured exactly as stated. Very fine quality and I just won't buy from anyone else. I bought wood from a competitor before hearing about Rockler and half the wood they sent was bowed or warped. Never have that worry with Rockler. I've bought maple, cherry, walnut and purpleheart and it has all been good. Nice job!

Good stuff

Rick Posted March 7, 2014
I've ordered cherry, maple and walnut from Rockler a few times now and I've never gotten a bad piece much like I have from other suppliers who don't seem to care. I've bought 1/2 inch and 3/4 in various sizes and they've all been good. I don't buy from anybody else. Rockler is tip-top.
