    This hardwood species is a popular wood for making furniture and ranges from white to reddish-brown.

    Maple wood comes from the Northeast US where maple wood trees are prevalent. This wood yellows with age or exposure to UV rays of the sun into a honey color and those antiqued pieces are considered valuable. The grain is usually straight but severe variations in grain occur from diseased trees and those patterns are prized by artisan furniture makers.
