Maple Caskets from Aurora Casket


Tough, heavy, and hard, maple is a straight-grained wood that ranges from creamy white to pink-tinged to a light reddish-brown.

Maple is particularly resistant to abrasion and wear, and is used to manufacture caskets as well as flooring, furniture, interiors, cabinetry, and for decorative veneers.

Maple can be tricky to work with in manufacturing, as it tends to dry slowly and have a high shrinkage factor, which can make it susceptible to variances in performance if not carefully attended. However, with care it machines well, turns well, and can be stained to a truly beautiful finish.
