MAPLE

Finishing of Maple

Maple   is   our   favorite   wood   species   to   finish.      Due   to   the   tight   grain   structure,   maple   is   the   ideal   wood   for any   finishing.      Maple   stains   well,   paints   well,   and   the   final   appearance   is   second   to   none.      We   love   finishing maple    because    the    final    finish    comes    out    amazing.        You    will    love    how    maple    looks    when    finished.      Furniture made with maple stains up nicel with soft flowing grain lines that warm and beautify.  Native Regions There   are   approximately   200   species   of   maple   worldwide.   But   sugar   maple   is   the   most   abundant   species   of maple   used   for   commercial   purposes   in   the   United   States.   It   grows   primarily   in   the   Central   to   North Eastern   United   States   and   can   be   found   as   far   south   as   Missouri   and   Tennessee.   Sugar   maple   can   grow   in most   types   of   soil,   but   it   seems   to   flourish   in   moist,   well   drained   landscapes   between   the   2500   to   4500   foot elevations. Characteristics Sugar   maple   is   a   fine,   even   textured   wood   that   is   sometimes   referred   to   as   hard   or   rock   maple.   Its   color ranges   from   cream   to   pinkish-tan.   It   weighs   45   lbs/cu.   ft.   which   classifies   it   as   a   heavy   domestic   hardwood. Its   grain   pattern   is   usually   straight   to   wavy,   but   on   rare   occasions   can   have   a   desirable   birdseye   pattern. Maple   is   above   average   for   hardness,   strength,   and   stiffness.   It   is   also   well   known   for   its   high   density, excellent   toughness   and   shock   resistance.   Durability   is   not   one   of   its   strengths,   so   only   indoor   use   is recommended. Properties  Sugar   maple   usually   machines   well,   but   at   times   can   be   somewhat   difficult   to   cut.   It   can   have   a   dulling effect   on   blades   and   cutters.   When   this   occurs,   usually   it   will   require   more   pressure   to   push   the   lumber,   or cause    burning.    Using    carbide    blades    and    cutting    at    a    slightly    slower    speed    can    usually    solve    these problems.   It   is   not   recommended   for   hand   tool   use   due   to   its   hard,   dense   characteristic.   It   also   can   be turned   and   carved   without   problems,   as   long   as   sharp   tools   are   used.   Maple   ranks   above   average   for bending    strength    and    excellent    for    holding    fasteners,    but    re-drilling    is    required.    Gluing    is    usually    no problem   as   long   all-purpose   PVA   (polyvinyl   acetate)   glue   is   used.   But   be   careful   not   to   over   tighten   the clamps.   The   fine,   even   texture   of   maple   does   not   require   filler,   and   makes   it   very   suitable   for   achieving smooth   glossy   finishes.   Stain   blotching   can   be   a   problem,   especially   with   darker   stains.   Blotching   occurs when   stains   are   absorbed   unevenly   into   the   wood.   To   prevent   blotching,   a   shellac   wash   coat   should   be applied prior to staining. Main Uses Maple   has   a   wide   variety   of   uses.   Some   of   these   include:   cabinets,   musical   instruments,   tool   handles, counter   tops,   cutting   boards,   butcher   blocks,   and   pool   cues.   Its   close   grain   pattern   and   high   shock   resist characteristics   make   maple   very   suitable   for   roller   skating   rinks,   dance   floors,   basketball   courts,   and   lanes for   bowling   alleys,   as   well   as   bowling   pins.   Birdseye   maple   or   Curly   Maple   is   frequently   sought   after   for high-end   cabinets.   Because   of   its   unusual   and   interesting   grain   pattern,   birdseye   maple   is   more   expensive than the typical maple grain patterns.
