Got a old broken futon from a couple that said it might be an exotic wood. The main supports were cracked and broken. After fixing and re-engineering the parts that failed I started to take off the dark stain to reveal hard maple.
Much sanding and buying of new hardware the futon is very much alive again. I added maple plugs to where original access holes were as I have no intent of breaking down the futon.
It now works very well. Better than going to a landfill.

Maple? Free? Nothin better if you have a place for it!
