American Hard Maple, used by American engravers for decades. Pale beige colour, and even in grain, especially good for larger engravings when cost is an issue. Slightly softer than Lemonwood, making it easier to clear areas. Besides custom sizes also offered in standard sizes.
Maple (Acer saccharum, Acer nigrum). All woods perform best with sharp tools, but this is especially the case with Maple..
