Hard or "sugar," maple is one of the most popular woods used in today's furniture industry. It is elastic and very strong. It has good shock resisting qualities and wears well. It is one of the hardest of the common woods. The grain is straight with occasional wavy, curly, bird's eye patterns that are much prized in veneers. The natural color is white to amber. Less desirable features are that it warps easily unless properly seasoned and occasionally splits. Maple is sometimes finished to simulate cherry wood.
Maple is grown throughout southern Canada, and northern and northeast United States. It is known for its hardness, density, and weight. Its grain pattern is usually straight but it may occasionally be curly or wavy. Its uses include furniture, pool cues, dance floors, and table tops.

The maple tree is found everywhere in Québec. The French who came to New France in the XVIIth century discovered that the sap of this tree is edible. Each spring, the peoples of Canada slit the bark of the maple tree to collect the "sweet water". The French learned to drink this sap and later, thanks to their metal utensils, how to boil it, first into a syrup and then into sugar. Maple sugar and the cane sugar imported from the French Antilles were both used for table sugar. It is only at the end of the last century that the pasteurizing process made it possible to preserve the syrup, which enabled year-long trade.
