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 to 3/4" thickness, 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.
Also known as "Pau Ferro," Bolivian Rosewood features a deep, chocolate brown tone with hints of purple, interlaced with even darker brown or black growth lines.

Often used for the curving sides of guitars, Bolivian Rosewood steam bends nicely and will take an exceptional finish. All boards are machined S4S, and are planed to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, relieving your planer of excess work. You also 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!Common Names: Bolivian Rosewood, Morado, Pau Ferro.Botanical Classification: Machaerium scleroxylonTree is Native To: Bolivia and Brazil.Average Dried Weight: 53 lb/ft.

Each of these unique slabs is individually cut to reveal the most interesting grain and to preserve as much of the natural live edge as possible - use them for table tops, clock faces, signs, decorative wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can drum up. Live edge slabs reveal the individual character of the tree from which they were cut, and provide woodworkers with beautiful wide boards that would otherwise be ripped thin if milled for yield. Because of their width, most of these slabs won't fit through a jointer or planer. Instead, they are carefully flattened on a custom-built, manually-operated mill. The slabs are then sanded to 150-grit and given a light of coat of clear shellac for protection. All of these slabs are sourced from small family-owned mills that practice responsible land management. For dimensions refer to the grid in the photo: each red square represents 12''; each black square represents 4'' When necessary, checking and defects are carefully patched at the mill Sanded to 150-grit and coated with shellac for protection
