The white to reddish white wood of the maple is glossy with fine pores. With a density of 0,61 kg/dm³ it is a medium heavy wood. Maple is very stable, tough and moderately hard. The wood shrinks very little but does have a tendency to crack. It takes well to processing, turning and bending but it is difficult to stain or colour. When used outdoors it becomes clear that it is not weather resistant and is susceptible to fungi and insects. It is primarily used for making furniture and interior furnishings.
These hardwood board segments provide a large range of wood colours and textures for use in model making and woodturning. The pieces are air-dried, leaving the moisture content as a rule between 12 and 13%. The sides of the wood pieces tend to darken somewhat as a result of the open air drying.
