Species Name: Acer Saccharum
Common Names: Hard Maple, Rock Maple, Sugar Maple, White Maple
Workability: 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, though blotches can occur when staining, and a pre-conditioner, gel stain, or toner may be necessary to get an even color
