Finally, many species considered "secondary woods" due to their low price have their own unique beauty. Soft maple more commonly displays eye-popping figure, such as curl and birdseye, than hard, but isn't always sorted for figure. So, you can find some steals with careful rummaging. Sapwood streaks that might otherwise be sent to the scrap pile can be used to deliberately display striking patterns, separating your project from a world of factory-made furniture.
