Maple – Hard – Birds Eye – Natural / Standard Grade

Wood Species / Grade Description

Weight: 2.750 Lb/Sq. Ft (Based on 3/4″ thickness)

This is the recommended grade to select if you desire a product with the maximum amount of birds-eye in it, and if you are willing to accept some color variation. Our primary focus when matching this grade is to make sure that plenty of birds-eye is visible in the final product.

This species can be compared to our Maple-Hard-Natural / Standard grade, but with a somewhat greater color variation; including all colors of sapwood and possibly some heartwood, to achieve the birds-eye look.

We recommend a Natural/Clear Coat (no stain) when using this species so that the birds-eye doesn’t get masked over by the stain color. If a stain color is required, we highly recommend a light colored “Spray No Wipe” stain process, not a Wiping stain process when using this species.

Please note that any product requiring a thickness greater than ¾” will consist of two or more laminated layers.

Note: All Wood Species Samples are shown with a Natural / Clear Coat (No Stain) Finish and will look different when ordered unfinished.

Disclaimer for Color

Actual product color and detail may vary due to individual computer preferences and monitor settings. We highly recommend ordering an actual product sample of the species and stain color to eliminate any confusion. Please contact our Customer Support Team to place your order.
