American Hard Maple 
Name Acer saccharum
Origin Northeastern North America
Colour Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of hard maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker reddish-brown. Hard maple can also be seen with curly or quilted grain patterns.
Grain The grain is generally straight but may be wavy. Has a fine, even texture.
Rot Resistance Rated as non-durable to perishable, and susceptible to insect attack.
Typical Applications Flooring (from basketball courts and dance-floors to bowling alleys and residential), veneer, paper (pulpwood), musical instruments, cutting boards, butcher blocks, workbenches, baseball bats, and other turned objects and specialty wood items.
Density 740 kg/m³ average
Workability Fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high-speed cutters such as in a router. Turns, glues, and finishes well, though blotches can occur when staining, and a pre-conditioner, gel stain, or toner may be necessary to get an even color.
