Soft Maple

Soft Maple (or "Red Maple") is not "soft", as its name would imply. On the contrary, Soft Maple is twice as hard as Poplar, putting it at the same hardness level as Cherry. Soft Maple is valued for its bright white sapwood and reddish-brown heartwood, and readily receives stains or clear-coat to enhance its natural beauty. Additionally, Soft Maple accepts Thermal Modification, making it one of the most versatile Species in our portfolio
