I have used ROASTED MAPLE for several years now and buy it at Windsor Plywood here in Canada .
It is a nice accent wood but somewhat soft and brittle and has a burned wood smell when cutting on the table saw .
The process used to make it is called heat treating and is used to make deck lumber rot and insect resided as one example .It is used in Europe instead of treating wood with chemicals and not only on maple but several other woods .
There is a lot of info on this subject on Google.
I include a project that has roasted maple as a accent
I sure like the colour of this deep brown wood and it is a relatively inexpensive .
