Curly Maple Tiger Maple, Fiddleback Maple. This wood is highly praised by luthiers as it is not only extremely beautiful, but it has great strength and tone. You will find it on the front and back of many fine musical instruments. It is a highly prized American hardwood. This is an unbelievably attractive wood, and you will find yourself looking at it over and over. It draws you in. All of our wood plates are finished as the wood grew on the tree. No stains or dyes. Just the beautiful wood as nature intended it. No two plates are ever alike and the color may change slightly over the years because they are real wood! They are finished with a super hard clear finish for unlimited durability!
It's like furniture for your walls!
All of our plates are shipped finished, and ready to use! "We never charge for the finish"!
