Maple (Acer saccharum) is a fine-grained wood with a uniform texture. Its growth rings are narrow and faintly contrasted. Its colour varies from a beige that’s almost white in the sapwood to a more full-bodied brown, making it the lightest hardwood species. Its colour changes moderately over time, becoming more golden hued. This wood has a Janka hardness rating of 1450.The Solid wood boards including the finishing stages, such as sanding and the finishing, are entirely factory performed under ideal conditions. These pre-varnished boards are ready to be used immediately following their installation. Each board consists entirely of 3/4” thick solid wood; there is, therefore, no gluing or laminating required.
