Ambrosia Maple Thin

Wormy Maple is one of the most unique types of wood!

What is Ambrosia Maple lumber? Well it's not actually a species - but rather two things that happen to the wood when it has been infested by the Ambrosia beetle! The most obvious is the tiny holes from the beetle boring through, but it also leaves some interesting streaking caused from a fungus it carries on it's legs. Of course it goes without saying all our lumber is kiln dried and these visitors are no longer an issue!

There can be a variance from batch to batch in terms of how much streaking we get - but we do try our best to send you the boards that have the most character. In regards to the tiny holes - they will need to be filled and it's a great opportunity to try our P-Tec Wood Filler

Great for crafts, scroll saw work, intarsia, chip carving, laser engraving, and much more! These boards are flat, straight, and ready for sanding.

In order to offer more protective packing for shipping - our lengths are often 1/4" less than sizes listed. Need a wider width or longer length? Please email us for a quote. Custom millwork charges will apply.

Ambrosia Maple

Don't count on receiving this product like the picture on the website. Mine had very little figuring in it. I regret even ordering it. Other product I ordered I was pleased with. I will probably not buy wood on line again. Too expensive to return if I'm not pleased.
