With color like creamy white to off white with tinged sapwood that is light in color, and occasionally with slight red brown heartwood. Maple finishes well and also takes a stain very well. A first class foundation for enamel finishes because of its even, close grain texture and uniform color and absorption.

A Note about Wood
Mayland Cabinets are constructed of quality materials and finished with superior coatings. With every effort to match wood grains as best as possible no two pieces are exactly the same. This means each piece will respond different to the finishing process. Contact with sunlight, smoke and chemicals may cause some finishes to fade over time or vary from the original color. This is also a reason a door sample may not be the exact color of cabinets received at the time of shipment.
