Characteristics of Maple

concord-kitchen-slide-2 

Maple is a hardwood, light in color with smooth uniform grain patterns.  The color may vary from white to light gray or tan. Maple will mellow as it ages, with the exposure to light and air.   Maple will exhibit random mineral streaks.  These dark streaks are mineral deposits.  This occurs throughout the growth process when the tree absorbs the minerals in the soil.  Other characteristics of maple are birds-eye and worm track patterns.
