Appearance

This wood is known for the ambrosia beetle holes and subsequent staining due to a fungus similar to Spalted Maple.

Workability

This wood can be a challenge to work due to the varying density. It’s striking looks are often sought after even though there are some finishing challenges involving beetle holes requiring filling.

Uses

Furniture, wood turnings, as well as crates or pallets.

Additional Comments

The distinct beetle holes and staining are desired by some woodworkers and can give the final projects a somewhat rustic appearance. Ambrosia Maple is not a species of Maple, but a fungal discolouration caused by boring ambrosia beetles. Most of the Ambrosia Maple is found in soft maples.
