TYPES OF MAPLE


Recommended Posts

Rock, European, Bigleaf, Western, Silver, Red...there are five species that are important to the timber industry, I don't know if these are exactly them.

In terms of musical instrument construction, I think basically Rock Maple is used for solid necks, most commonly displaying bird's-eye figuring, and sometimes curling, and Bigleaf or Western tends to display intence flaming and quilting, so I believe it's Bigleaf or Western that gets used for figured tops or backs, and laminated necks.

The furniture manufacturer I work for uses Western Maple in it's maple furniture.
