Hard White Maple // Acer saccharum

At least 90% white sapwood. Known for its durability and strength, hence it's common use for flooring, butcher blocks, and large furniture. It has excellent turning properties, a fine & even texture, and a natural luster. Somewhat difficult to work due to high surface hardness. Paints and finishes very well, though.
