(Acer saccharum)


Maple is found all over the world, but the Hard Maple wood in our watches comes from Northeastern North America. Unlike our other woods that utilize the center heartwood of the tree, our Maple watches are made from the outer rings, known as the sapwood. The graining is typically straight with slight waves and has a fine, uniform texture. Maple is fairly easy to work with but care must be taken to not overheat the tools as maple is easily burned.
