Maple wood’s neutral tone and straight grain pattern makes it a wonderful solution for countless wood projects including hardwood flooring, car interiors, guitar bodies, drum sets, gun stocks, art, cabinetry, furniture, construction, and other wooden handmade items such as bowls and butcher blocks. It can even be used in place of countless less sustainable materials with a bit of paint or stain alone.
Maple wood has a Janka hardness scale rating of 1,450, making it one of the hardest domestic woods on the market. This means it can withstand potential fall or water damage as well as daily use without bending, warping, cracking, or chipping. This is why it serves as a perfect material for cutting boards. However, it can also help preserve your chef’s knives as well since its grain pattern also keeps your knife stable as it cuts with the direction of the wood fibers. This ensures your kitchen investments truly withstand the test of time for years to come.
On top of its strength and beauty, maple wood is also self healing, cost-effective, and eco-friendly. Maple wood heals knife scores made on its surface which helps this wood to eliminate the potential of food poisoning or foodborne illness. This makes this material far better than cheaper woods or plastics by far.
Maple is also easy to grow and manufacture in mass which is exactly why it is one of the most sustainable woods on the market and why it is affordable likewise. This means that our boards and blocks aren’t just high-quality but aren’t costly and help the environment as well.
All dimensions are approximate sizes. It is best to work with the natural characteristics of the wood first and the dimensions second.
