Wood of the Week
Perfect for rustic and traditional homes, Ambrosia Maple flooring creates captivating spaces. I don’t think it’s far fetched to say that you’ll be telling the story of your floor to every person who sees it for the first time. What makes Ambrosia Maple so special?
Each plank of Ambrosia Maple has been touched by life itself. When the Ambrosia beetle makes it home in a maple tree, it leaves a trail that creates the wormy pattern. It is this wormy maple pattern in Soft Maple lumber that creates such a lasting impression.
Many people ask whether the tiny holes left by the Ambrosia beetle compromise the wood in any way. The answer is no. Once the wood is finished, those holes are filled in and add to the wood’s overall appeal. With beautiful brown and grey stripes, the small worm holes act as accents and really do look great.
At Advantage Lumber, we hand-pick the best Ambrosia maple lumber by hand. By picking best looking wormy maple, you can have a floor that is a true conversation piece.
