The creamy white sapwood of the Hard Maple is often tinged with pink or pale reddish-brown tones. The heartwood is more red in color, varying from light to dark reddish-brown. The growth rings produce a very fine brown line throughout the wood. The grain of Hard Maple is tight with fine texture, and usually straight, although several variations of curly or burled grain, which are most desirable, can be found in some Hard Maples. The burled wood resembles small circular or elliptical figures, that also are called Birdseye and when more irregular in nature are called Fiddleback.
Hard Maple can be difficult to work, blunting tools slightly. The wood dries slowly and shrinks extensively, which must be taken into consideration. Pre-boring is recommended prior to nailing or screwing. The wood is hard and heavy with good resistance to abrasion and indentation. Hard Maple takes stain and polishes well to produce a beautiful, fine finish.
