• We offer two Ready-To-Be-Finished platform sizes and do not offer custom-sizing for these DIY pieces. For more sizes and 4" thicknesses, please view our Finished Maple Platforms.
• Because maple is an organic material, the exact weight of each platform varies slightly. The figuring and natural grain coloring of each platform is unique. Our Amish craftsmen hand-planed down every Mapleshade platform from rough-cut 2-1/2" maple to remove coarseness and imperfections from the sawmill. Typically this process yields a finished 2" thickness but, because of variations in the rough-cut timber, the exact thickness can vary by 3/16".
• To protect your Ready-To-Be-Finished Platform from humidity changes that can cause warping or cracking, we strongly recommend finishing your platform with a minimum of two (preferably four) coats of lacquer.
• Never use oil-based products to stain or finish your platform. Oil-based products will deaden the natural resonance of the air-dried maple, audibly degrading its advertised performance.
