Maple – Hard – Birds Eye – Select / Premium Grade

Wood Species / Grade Description

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

We have two main focuses when matching this grade. First we focus on delivering as much birds-eye in the final product as humanly possible, and secondly we focus on keeping color variation to a minimum.

This grade will have “noticeably fewer” birds-eyes than our Maple-Hard-Birds-Eye-Natural/Standard grade. Due to the lack of heartwood in this product, fewer birds-eyes are produced. This species can be compared to Maple-Hard-Select, but with a greater color variation due to carefully selecting sapwood with a variety of colors 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.
