Who says you can't stain maple?

Posted on Wed, Dec 07, 2011 @ 19:12 PM

In the wood flooring industry, staining means the color of the wood.  For all my life, I was told you “can’t” stain maple.  I hate the word can’t.   It simply meant we didn’t know how to stain maple.   Today, we have an exclusive technique that we use to stain and finish maple.   We have expanded that to other hard to stain woods such as cherry, birch, hickory, and pine. 

One of the other comments that we have is that we have oak but we like don’t like the grain.   Combining art and science, we have multiple ways to minimize the grain.   We are not going to completely remove the grain, however we can minimize it through specialize pre-treatments and stains.
