Bird's Eye Maple Exotic Wood

Our Bird's Eye wooden salad bowls and boards are not for show they are for using and enjoying. Ideal as a salad or pasta server or platform for a selection of fine cheeses or canapes, or for everyday light cutting.

Information you need to know...

Sugar or Rock Maple is in its usual character, and a rather lightly figured blond wood. You have seen it on the floor of your local gymnasium or bowling alley where it provides a hard smooth floor. A genetic defect occurs in some trees where the grain turns inwards in small spots creating a different pattern. This pattern causes an effect like tiny bird's eyes. The beauty of the pattern makes this type of Maple extremely sought after and valuable.

As a matter of interest, it can be the case that the small number of Birds Eyed trees in a stand of timber can be worth more than all the other trees put together!

We have included a picture of four Individual Bowls which show the variety of woods connected with Birds Eye. Some Birds Eye is in a very light almost white wood, some in a darker wood, and there are dark areas of mineral deposits. As far as we are concerned it is all of the same quality. This is not plastic, it is wood which has all the evidence of organic and natural growth. Whenever possible we will match a group of bowls to the best of availability.
