The hardwearing properties and tight smooth grain make this species ideal for high traffic flooring applications such as theatres, concert halls, gymnasiums and basketball courts
WORKING QUALITIES Hard maple dries slowly with a large shrinkage so it can be susceptible to movement in performance. Pre boring is recommended when nailing and screwing. With care it maintains well, turns well. Glues satisfactorily and can be stained and polished to an outstanding finish
