Special forms of Hard Maple are the Curly Maple, Quilted Maple, Fiddleback Maple and the Bird’s Eye Maple.


So-called “sugar” occurs in Hard Maple veneer – small, brown stains spread over the surface. These can be diminished by steaming or staining.


More power is required for machining Hard Maple wood but smooth surfaces and profiles can be produced by using hard metal–tipped tools. There is a risk of burns when using dull tools.

Kiln drying in particular must be carried our very slowly and carefully because the wood tends to easily check or warp.


Hard Maple can easily be stained and can be surface-treated with any finish with no difficulty.


Glue joints hold well and pre-drilled screw joints are preferred over nail joints.
