Maple (genus Acer) has a density of 44 lbs/ft3 (705 kg/m3). It can be worked and sawn in any direction. Maple is so hard and resistant to shocks that it is often used for bowling alley floors. Apart from bowling alley, it is used for making musical instruments, furniture, joinery, wood flooring and parquetry, and because it is non-staining, is used for kitchen utensils, wooden spoons, bowls, rolling pins and chopping boards.
