Ambrosia Maple

Acer (various)


Ambrosia Maple is regular maple that has been attacked by the ambrosia beetle which spreads a fungus through the wood as it burrows, this in turn causes some very striking discolorations in the wood.

We offer two selections of ambrosia maple, the regular that has 50% or less discoloration and black ambrosia which has more than 50% discoloration. You can see the difference to the right. These are natural woods discolored through a process in nature, so each piece will be different, sometimes very much so.

Padauk

Pterocarpus soyauxii


Padauk starts out a bright orange, but will slowly oxidize into a deep purple-brown with the passage of years. The most striking usage of padauk is pairing it with lighter woods for beautiful contrasts. Padauk is quite hard and heavy.

Purpleheart

Peltogyne paniculata


Purpleheart has a color that is hard to believe is real. It is a very hard wood with excellent shock resistance. It takes a beautiful finish and will last years, but eventually the color with become more brown-to-black as UV light slowly chemically changes its pigment.

Red Oak

Quercus rubra


Red Oak has a very coarse and open grain pattern that is quite distinctive with a pink to reddish-brown hue. It is fairly shock resistant, and the nature of its grain makes for a rustic feel even when well finished.

Wenge

Millettia laurentii


Wenge is an exotic hardwood with an incredibly rich grain and texture. Its deep brown and even deeper brown grain, it is like someone mixed milk chocolate & dark chocolate. Wenge is a very hard and looks fantastic with lighter woods for contrast in both color and grain type.

Bubinga

Bubinga begins as a reddish wood with an interesting grain, but after many years it will deepen to a reddish-umber color, but still retain its attractive grain qualities. It is often used for decorative inlays on expensive musical instruments and as decorative veneers..

Leopardwood

Roupala montana


Leopard wood has an amazing flecked surface that is reminiscent of the spots of a leopard. Its color can range from reddish to brown and it is very hard. Due to its cost it is usually only used as a decorative wood, which is why we only have it available for inlays and accents.

Maple

Acer rubrum


Wood Classic is what my youngest calls maple, and probably for good reason, the beautiful, high-contrast grain is what many people think a wood should look like. Add to it, good shock-resistance and pleasant feel in the hand, maple is an enduring favorite.

Flame Maple (Tiger Maple)

Acer saccharum


 Flame Maple or Tiger Maple is popular for musical instruments because of the cat’s-eye effect or chatoyance the wood gives. Its pale color and interesting grain makes it great to contrast with other darker woods when designing your dice box or tower.

You can learn more about chatoyancy, or a cat’s-eye effect be following the included link. The effect is difficult to film, but looks very nice in person.
