Birdseye Maple, Acer saccharum
Each piece is wildly different and totally unique. Colors range from creamy pale white to light reddish brown, with occasional brown or black streaks or flecks.
When used as a lam top or carved top, Birdseye Maple imparts a bright and balanced tone, with remarkable note separation and clarity. It has excellent workability with hand tools, power tools, and CNC machines. Birdseye Maple is a "hard maple" that's dense, stiff, and incredibly stable. To limit chip out on highly figured pieces, use light passes and sharp cutters.
Birdseye Maple is a closed pore wood that's easy to stain and finish. Darker translucent finishes can really add depth to the birdseyes.
