Handstone’s (Made in Canada) Heritage Maple is an excellent choice if you are after the barn board/rustic look. (Ideal for your kitchen). It’s durable and contains natural small holes/beauty marks, so you don’t have to worry if the table suffers a little wear and tear from every day use. What we like about Heritage maple compared to what other barn boards is that there are no grooves between the boards for food to get caught in. You have the option of having the hand planed look (pic 1 -5) , or having it sanded smooth(pic 6). Heritage maple is also known as wormy maple.
