Figured MapleFigured Maple
Figure or curl is a natural occurrence and can be found in a variety of woods. The surface of the wood shows a linear, wavy pattern that is particularly striking when finished. In some forms it is a hereditary wave pattern in the wood fibers, in others it is an effect of wood fibers being compressed by a change in the direction of growth, such as at a fork forming a new trunk or limb. Figured wood has long been used in musical instrument bodies.
