Curly Hard Maple
Size approx 25x38x127 mm.
Curly hard maple is also known as Tiger maple, and is a traditional hard maple with soft and flowing figure. Grain is generally straight, but may be wavy. Has a fine, even texture. Fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools, though slightly more difficult than soft maple due to hard maple’s higher density. Maple has a tendency to burn when being machined with high-speed cutters such as in a router. Turns, glues, and finishes well.
