Maple is a fine grained wood of considerable hardness. It has a nice warm tone that is velvety, robust and full-bodied.
The basic color of Maple is white or cream colored, with the grain markings being a rich brown. Maple, especially the more ornamental and aesthetic varieties, are favorites of Native American Style Flute makers.
The name Curly maple refers to the ripples in the grain pattern that create a three dimensional effect that appears as if the grain has “curled” along the length of the board.
