Changing from curly maple to rock maple

by Don Strenczewilk

I've been having a very difficult time acquiring curly maple for our Pegs & Jokers and Marbles & Jokers games lately. So yesterday, I bought 200 board feet of rock maple and that is what I'll use for these games for the time being.

The problem is that the quality of the curly maple is very poor, with many knots and much gray heartwood. The new Rock Maple is very white and bright.

So, currently the woods used for 8-player versions of the games will be

  • Rock Maple
  • Sapele (mahogany)
  • Red Oak
  • Cherry
