Also called Rock Maple, Hard Maple grows throughout the United States, east
of the Rocky Mountains, with the exception of Florida, South Carolina, and Delaware.
It is most prominent in the New England states, Great Lakes region, and Canadian
Great Lakes provinces.
This domestic hardwood ranges in color from reddish-brown to light tan, and
takes stains and polishes well. With a fine, uniform
texture and close grain, Hard Maple is a very strong wood. Due to its
strength and stiffness, it ranks as one of the more valuable hardwoods.
Hard Maple is suitable for pepper mills and pepper grinders because it is also
excellent for turning. Hard Maple brings a long-standing
American tradition of durability to our Exotic Woods Pepper Mills.
A visually striking hardwood imported from Brazil, Yellowheart boasts a bright
yellow color that’s very consistent across the surface. The grain is usually
straight and uniform.
This wood’s distinctive color lends itself well to adding dramatic accents
in smaller items, such as pepper mills, salt mills and grinders
Yellowheart’s distinctive golden hue serves as a brilliant contrast to the
darker woods used in our Exotic Woods Pepper Mills.
Also known as Snakewood, Leopardwood is an exotic wood from Australia that’s
distinguished by a dark reddish-brown color and strong, broad rays. Straight-grained
with a medium texture, the highly flecked decorative surface makes this wood
ideal for furniture and accent work.
The color of this somewhat scarce wood can be a pale pinkish brown to medium
brown. A flaky, speckled figure is marked with dark flecks, varying from a small,
lace-like pattern to a larger “splashy” appearance. With a fairly coarse texture,
Leopardwood is moderately hard, works easy, and takes a lustrous finish.
Due to its beautifully figured nature, Leopardwood has many diverse applications,
and adds a truly unique textural effect to our Exotic Wood Pepper Mills.
