The striped maple is native to Nova Scotia, New England and the Appalachian Mountains as far south as northern Georgia. It is considered an under-story tree, since it seldom grows tall enough to be in the forest canopy. It is also called moose maple (it is heavily browsed in provinces where moose are still present) and goosefoot maple (reflecting the shape of the leaf).

The finish is a highly durable multilayer acrylic finish that is polished through a multi-step process to produce a high gloss finish that gives exceptional depth to the grain of the wood. This finish provides highest level of protection for the wood.
The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
