Specie Latin: Acer saccharum. Specie Description: The hard maple is the state tree of Wisconsin, Vermont, New York and West Virginia. In the North, during the cold nights and warm days of late winter, the sugar maple is tapped for its sucrose-containing sap, the source of maple syrup. Until the turn of the century, the heels of women's shoes were made from maple. Maple has been a favorite of American furniture makers since early Colonial days.
Hard Maple: Tends to have cream to white sapwood and light reddish brown heartstock, usually straight grained and sometimes found with high figured bird's eye or burl grain. Bird's-eye resembles small circular or elliptical figures and only found in sugar maple. Clusters of round curls that grow into balls on the sides of trees, are known as burls. They are common in the big leaf maple of the west coast. Hard maple is heavy, hard, strong, tough, stiff, close grained and possesses a uniform texture. It sands to a beautiful tight finish. Excellent resistance to abrasion, indentation and shock. Often the heart stock, shows black mineral lines and darker grey streaking, particularly in wood milled in the northern part of its range. Commercially it is usually sorted by color.
Soft Maples: These trees tend to be very similar to the hard maples but much lighter in density. The sapwood can be very white and often show nice curl. The heartwood is tan to gray in color, often with extreme color changes on one board. Soft maple is almost never sorted by color.
Maple burl is created by an unusual growth on trees that results in a highly figured piece of wood. Maple burl is often darker in color than maple wood, yellow ochre to brown, with many whorls and patterns and an uneven, rough edge. It is often found on Big Leaf Maples native to the Pacific Northwest
Maple: Acer saccharum, Acer nigrum Other names: Sugar Maple, Black Maple
Grows in the eastern U.S., principally in Mid-Atlantic and Lake states. It favors a more northerly climate and grows to an average of 130 feet. Hard maple is the standard wood for cutting boards because it imparts no taste to food and holds up well, and has been a favorite in the furniture business since early Colonial days. It is probably the most difficult North American species to work with, but lasts a lifetime. The sapwood is creamy white with a slight reddish brown tinge and the heartwood varies from light to dark reddish brown. The amount of darker brown heartwood can vary significantly according to growing region. The wood has a fine, uniform texture and is generally straight-grained, but it can also occur as “curly”, “fiddleback” and “birds-eye” figure.
Rhodium is a precious metal, a member of the platinum family. Rhodium electroplating is used, especially on jewelry, to provide a surface that will resist scratches and tarnish, and give a white, reflective appearance. Rhodium plating is most often found on white gold in jewelry as helps the piece to keep its good looks longer - rhodium will not tarnish or discolor, and since it is a harder substance, it is much less likely to get scratched.
From Wikipedia: Cyanoacrylate is the generic name for cyanoacrylate based fast-acting adhesives such as methyl 2-cyanoacrylate, ethyl-2-cyanoacrylate (commonly sold under trade names like Super Glue, Krazy Glue, and Cyber Fix Glue), and n-butyl cyanoacrylate (used in the veterinary glues Vetbond and LiquiVet and skin glues like GluStitch, Xoin, Indermil, LiquiBand and Histoacryl). The related compound 2-octyl cyanoacrylate is a medical grade glue encountered under various trade names, such as derma+flex QS, SurgiSeal, octylseal, FloraSeal, Dermabond, Surgi-Lock and Nexaband; it was developed to be non-toxic and less irritating to skin tissue. Cyanoacrylate adhesives are sometimes known as instant glues. The abbreviation CA is commonly used for industrial grades.
My words: For pen finishes, CA glue provides a durable plastic-like shell over the wood or other base material. It produces a clear, hard shell that provides protection for the underlying material and can be polished to an ultra-high shine like many acrylic based materials.
