We use acer saccharum, commonly called hard maple, hard rock maple, or sugar maple. The wood is very hard and strong, and takes a beautiful finish. We sand and polish. You can tell it. The subtle figure and honey color are occasionally laced with darker character marks.
We are ecstatic about our Weeks Rocker!!! You are a masterful furniture artist — it is simple, elegant and extremely comfortable. In fact, I've hardly been anywhere else but sitting in that rocker since it arrived on Tuesday. We will take some photos of how we are enjoying the rocker and promise to share a couple of them with you.
The shipment arrived on time and intact — excellent work!
Thanks again for the great customer service.
The A. Family
