Working Properties:

Hard Maple is fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools, though slightly more difficult than Soft Maple due to it’s higher density. Maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high speed cutters such as in a router. This wood turns, glues, and finishes well. However, when staining, use a pre-conditioner, gel stain, or toner, to achieve a more even color and avoid blotches.

Suitable Substitutes:
