Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
The sapwood of Soft Maple varies in color from creamy white to greyish-white and is sometimes marked with darker colored pith flecks. Although not as rich as Hard Maple, the heartwood is similar in color, with reddish-brown tones ranging from light to dark. The growth rings of Soft Maple are not as distinct as those of Hard Maple. Soft maple is straight-grained, without the exceptional burled or birds-eye characteristics that can be found in Hard Maple.
Soft Maple is less hard and stiff than Hard Maple, and low in stiffness and shock resistance. It machines well, with minimum blunting to tools, and can be nailed or screwed satisfactorily. Soft Maple takes stain exceptionally well.
