Because of the importance of being able to consistently produce acceptable color, the objectives of this study were to quantify, order, and determine the respective importance of drying schedule, harvest season, and log age on the color of kiln-dried hard maple boards.

Buckeye burl can feature reddish brown knots, with light to dark gray swirls of discoloring (see pictures below).. Grain/Texture: Buckeye has a fine, even texture.
