WOODMaple

A species native to Central Europe and West Asia.

Its sapwood, which is white- or light yellow-coloured, cannot be told apart from its heartwood. Wood rays are clearly visible and look like very fine and decorative lines. The grain is fine and the fibre can be either straight or wavy.

Even though it air-dries well, it is advisable to dry it in low-temperature chambers. Slowly dried maple wood is sold as ‘aged maple’.

Its wood is considered a semi hardwood and does not pose any gluing, nailing, screwing or finishing problems. It bends readily in the presence of steam.

Both the heartwood and the sapwood can be impregnated.

It is very suitable for obtaining veneers by flat sawing.

In veneer form, it is used in decorative veneering and laminate flooring.
