Maple

(Acer saccharum)

Hard maple ought to be considered the king of the Acer genus. Its wood is stronger, stiffer, harder, and denser than all of the other species of maple commercially available in lumber form. It is the state tree of our home state of Wisconsin, as well as Vermont, New York and West Virginia. Fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools, though slightly more difficult than soft maple due to hard maple’s higher density. Hard Maple turns, glues, and finishes well. In tree form, hard maple is usually referred to as sugar maple.  In the North, during the cold nights and warm days of late winter, the sugar maple is tapped for its sucrose-containing sap, the source of maple syrup. Until the turn of the century, the heels of women's shoes were made from maple. Maple has been a favorite of American furniture makers since early Colonial days.
