Most people know that one of the most common uses for Hard Maple lumber is in cabinetry. Like other hardwood species, the demand for hard maple is always changing.  But, over the last few years there has been a noticeable steady need for 4/4” 1 Common and 2 Common grade lumber. And to serve the needs of the cabinet manufacturers we have been providing custom ripped-to-width hardwood products as needed.

Hard Maple is typically harvested from a large growing region. We find hard maple timber available from the forests in Minnesota through Maine and from Canada down through Kentucky. Most people prefer hard maple from the northern states like New York. Fortunately, as a supplier who operates numerous hardwood sawmills and lumber yards in the northern Appalachian region we are usually able to accommodate specific regional requests such as this.

Since our sawmill locations span from New York to Wisconsin we can provide hard maple with various characteristics, grain patterns and color. We do provide custom sorts based on color, length and width for hard maple and we mainly saw thicknesses from 4/4 to 8/4, (occasionally 10/4, 12/4 or 16/4).
