Ambrosia Maple is a beautiful, unique wood that has a striking figure and color. The wood is characterized by its swirls and streaks, which are caused by the Ambrosia beetle boring into the tree. It is strong and durable. The wood is also prized for its color, which can range from light pink to deep red, depending on the age of the tree. This makes it a popular choice for furniture, flooring, and other decorative items. Our Ambrosia Maple is sourced from the Northeastern United States. Woodworkers and artisans are drawn to ambrosia maple for its exceptional beauty and the stories it tells through its distinctive patterns. The wormhole marks and contrasting colors add depth and character to furniture, cabinetry, and decorative accents, creating pieces that serve as conversation starters and focal points in any space. Ambrosia maple can be found in various regions where maple trees grow, including North America. The specific locations where ambrosia maple is harvested can vary, as it depends on the availability of maple trees susceptible to ambrosia beetle infestations. This type of maple is commonly found in the eastern United States, particularly in states like Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania, which have a significant maple tree population.

How To Order Lumber
What Is Surface Finishing/Planing?
Rough Sawn- The edges are rough cut and both surfaces will be unplanned.
SLR1E (straight line ripped one edge )- one edge is ripped straight.
SLR2E (straight line ripped two edges)- two edges is ripped straight.
S2S - The board has been run through a planer producing two flat faces, but the edges are left rough.
S3S - The board has been surfaced S2S first, then one edge is ripped straight (also known as SLR1E or straight line ripped one edge).
S4S - The board has surfaced on both faces (S2S) and received a rip on both edges, resulting in a board with two flat and parallel faces and two flat and parallel edges. This is the stuff you usually find for sale in the hardwood section of big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes.
Note: Planing will reduce the total board feet you receive slightly. Moreover, the actual thickness may vary slightly.
You take the length x width x thickness and then divide this by 144 (if all measurements are in inches)Here’s an example. A Lumber piece measures 20” wide, 48” long, and 1” thick Then the board feet will be 20 x 48 x 1
Yes, most of our lumber, luthier products, turning blanks, bowl blanks, etc are all rough cut. We do plane body blanks and this option is added when you buy. We do plane them down at no extra cost.
Nominal sizes harken back to the original rough green lumber sizes. The actual sizes are sizes after drying and surfacing the rough green lumber on all four sides.
|Nominal Thickness||Actual Thickness (S1S)||Actual Thickness (S2S)|
|4/4 (1") inch||7/8 inch||13/16 inch|
|6/4 (1-1/2") inch||1-3/8 inch||1-5/16 inch|
|8/4 (2") inch||1-13/16 inch||1-3/4 inch|
|12/4 (3") inch||2-13/16 inch||2-3/4 inch|
|16/4 (4") inch||3-13/16 inch||3-3/4 inch|
Yes, we do custom size orders. But there has to be a minimum of $200 order. But again we try our best to help out in other cases if we can.
