Bird's-Eye Maple Wood
Bird's-Eye Maple = Esdoorn
Bird's-eye Maple, gemused Maple or (actually erroneously) called Maple.
This is American Maple, which is full of little grains. These noodles come from small twigs (foothills or water locks) that grow on the trunks in the summer. Because of the big cold in the winter they freeze off and leave a trail of noodles.
The wood comes from Europe and North America. The wood is whitish to pale yellow and has a very fine grain. The wood can show special veins such as 'riegel' (flamed maple) or 'bird eyes' (birdseye maple).
