Oregon Big Leaf Maple is slightly coarser than European or Eastern Hard Rock Maple and as so is somewhat harder to work. Despite this, the beauty of the wood easily overcomes any difficulties in working. It has excellent color variations that range from white to coral pink & light brown. Boards of Big Leaf Maple usually have figure & color variations; no two boards are the same. This is another reason that Maple is such a fun wood for those who seek a creative flare in their projects.
This lumber is kiln dried and has been surfaced on two sides. Boards may have planer bite or fuzz. They are mostly flat, but may have bow up to 1/8” (mostly on boards longer than 3 ft). Nice clean, beautiful, highly figured boards.
