Roasted (Caramelized) Curly Maple

Prices starting at: $12. bd/ft (Roasted Birdseye is $15. a bd/ft)

The wood is heat treated and the darker color process is made by putting the wood into a dry kiln and bringing the moisture content down to 4%.

After that the kiln is vacuum sealed and the curly maple is heated at 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 hours. The end result is a permanent darkening completely through the wood.
