map of where Hard White Maple tree grows
Hard White Maple is a domestic wood from North America

A desireable combo of nearly-white color with ultra-tight grain. The wood is well known for its durability and strength, which is why you'll find it used for flooring, butcher blocks, and large furniture. Expect a smooth texture and a natural luster that's somewhat difficult to work due its hardness. But nothing else compares when you need the durability and appearance of hard maple.

As advertised but with annoying stickers
I bought 6 boards to make a sofa /console table quickly and without resurfacing. They were delivered cross-country in under a week. The boards are not as perfect as I had hoped for the cost. There are some blemishes but no knots. The boards are not very consistent from board to board, with some discoloration and one of them has distinct tiger eyes which will not look good in the panel glue up. The faces are very smooth but of course will still require final smoothing plane before finishing. They are also not entirely straight; there was over 1/4" of bow in a couple of them. Annoyingly there were three stickers on the faces of each board which didn't peel off cleanly. This defeated the purpose of paying a premium for ready-to-use boards, and is actually much worse than the big box store where at least they staple a label on the end of the board. So be ready to spend some time cleaning off the stickers. Overall I wish I had just gone to the big box store and bought them; honestly it's about the same quality and would have been easier and cheaper to deal with.

First, time buy
Very happy with the quality of their wood. Maple hardwood came in very well packaged. Customer Service was excellent, they reached out by phone, to make sure that I was happy with it. They reached out to make sure to call with any issues I might have with the wood or questions about any other wood products.

This was my first order from Wood Workers Source and the wood exceeded my expectations. The boards were straight and all surfaces planed smooth , which made my cutting board project a cinch.
