This curly soft maple is highly figured with tiger-striped rays running perpendicular to the grain pattern. Along with the wood's light color, this striping lends a shimmering quality to the lumber. Even unfinished, the wood has a very pleasing interaction with light. It is no surprise, then, that curly maple has become a woodworker's favorite for accents, specialty furniture, musical instruments, and more.To make the figure in this curly maple really "pop", we recommend using an oil product (tung, linseed, etc.), as opposed to a stain. If a lacquer or urethane finish is necessary, adding a coat or two of clear wax-free shellac before the final finishing will ensure that the figure stands out.

Each sheet of our Baltic Birch Plywood features exceptional strength and the ability to be finished to meet your project needs. The front, back and inner plies are all quality one-piece sheets, which result in excellent screw holding power. Faces may contain some matched plugs, and one face is light and even in color for an attractive finished face. All pieces are 30'' long, and are ripped to 12'' wide for bookcases, shelving and more narrow cabinets. Available in thicknesses of: 1/8'', 1/4'', 1/2'' and 3/4''. All dimensions are nominal and may be slightly undersized. Grade BB/BB: Both faces are relatively "void free" but may contain small patches and a slight knot pattern or mineral streaks. One face is light and even in color. Open knots and defects in a BB face veneer have been removed and replaced with small uniform ''football'' patches before being glued. The end result is a strong plywood that is attractive enough to be used on a variety of projects. 1/8'' thick Baltic Birch contains 3 plies1/4'' thick Baltic Birch contains 5 plies1/2'' thick Baltic Birch contains 9 plies3/4'' thick Baltic Birch contains 13 plies
