Origin: Northeastern North America

Color: The sapwood varies from white to a creamy white color and the heartwood is light reddish brown. Pores are extremely small and not visible. Generally hard maple is straight grained, but occasionally you can find curly, birdseye, blister, burly, or fiddleback figure.

Janka Hardness: 1450 (medium-hard)

Decay and Weather Resistance: Rated as low in decay resistance and susceptible to insect attack.

Workability: Hard Maple is fairly easy to work, though slightly more difficult than Soft Maple because of its higher density. This wood takes stain well and is capable of a high polish. It turns well on a lathe and is markedly resistant to abrasive wear.

Uses: Because of its excellent durability Hard Maple is used for flooring in bowling alleys, basketball courts, and gyms. It is also great for cutting boards, countertops, and bar tops. Maple logs can be found in very large sizes and will often have figuring to make interesting one piece tabletops.
