Birdseye Maple

Native to Northeastern North America, Birdseye maple is one of the rarest kinds of wood on the planet. It has a distinctive pattern that looks like tiny, swirling eyes disrupting the smooth lines of grain.

Birds-eye maple is a growth/grain anomaly of figured hard maple, it is not a distinct variety or species of maple. What causes the phenomenon is unknown, but it is thought to be due to unfavorable growing conditions. The tree tries to bud, but the new buds die, and only the knots remain.

Common names for this wood are Birdseye maple or bird’s eye maple. It is almost exclusively harvested from hard maple (Acer saccharum), which rates 1,450 lbf (6,450 N) on the Janka Harness Scale.
