Quilted Western Maple

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. Maple is a wonderful wood for those who seek a creative flare in their projects. Beautiful color and figure. Has incursions/knots in crotch figure. Some pinholes in greyish area, slightly soft to the touch from spalting.
