This ebonized finish on real maple wood is achieved with a deep black dye, creating an almost painted look. The underlying wood grain subtly peeks through, and the wood retains the tactile grain texture.
Maple is our most popular natural wood selection and has the fastest delivery time. Desks made with maple tops ship within three weeks of order. The silver maple we use for our maple desktops and file cabinets is a highly versatile species with color variations from nearly white to light grey. Its lighter color allows us to offer more staining options than with any other species. Silver maple is moderately heavy (36.4 lbs/cu ft), strong and stiff, and moderately shock resistant. Silver maple is known for its fine, uniform grain.
