S4S Curly Maple Lumber

This figured wood offers a distinct look for furniture and guitars!

Curly maples have the colouring seen on the the individual species but then feature a curled grain pattern that is found perpendicular to the grain direction. The curls can be quite tight together or spaced further apart and are sometimes also called Fiddleback Maple or Tiger Maple. 

Curly Maple works well, though a sharp hand plane will reduce the amount of tearout that occurs. It takes finishes and stains well and poses no difficulty in gluing. 

This wood gets used in many different ways. From showcased as a main wood on instruments to accents on furniture. You can also find it used on turnings or other decorative objects. Curly Maple can really add a bit of punch to a project but be careful to over do it. A small cabinet with curly drawers can look elegant while an entire piece made from this figured would can be visually overwhelming. 

If you would like to do the milling yourself - try our 4/4 Rough Cut Curly Maple Lumber for a more budget friendly version.

S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term "surfaced" or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough cut lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough cut lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x (5-6”) x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.

Premium curly maple

Was absolutely astounded by the two boards I was shipped. The drama in the grain was far more than I was expecting. I doubt I could find better thins anywhere for this price point.
