Birdseye maple (Acer saccharum) is not a separate species, but instead refers to a certain highly prized grain found in the sugar maple (Acer saccharum). The pattern is caused by a disturbance to the growth of the cambium, the growth layer between the bark and the sapwood. This pattern is relatively rare and therefore highly sought after. The sugar maple grows in North America and can reach heights of 135 feet. The tree is the main source of maple syrup, of course.
The wood is dense and hard and is also called hard maple, rock maple, or sugar maple.
Dimensions: approx. 255 x ∅ 210 mm

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
