Maple is one of the widest spread species in North America and can be found in nearly every region of the continent. Maple is very hard for a domestic wood and is widely used in cabinetry and flooring, and its light blond color makes it a great species for matching any decor. It is a fine-pored wood with a very tight grain the sapwood is almost white, and Maple is one of the only trees for which the sapwood is almost as highly prized as the heartwood.
The wood's high density and hardness mean that Maple can be harsh on cutting edges, but Maple will maintain a hard, crisp edge for mouldings. The wood is quite stable, thereby making it perfect for flooring applications. Because of the tight grain, however, stains, dyes, and wax will not penetrate very deeply; therefore, surface film finishing options like varnish and lacquer are the preferred finishing methods.
