OK, they have coined their own term for marketing purposes. What they are calling brown maple is soft maple, probably red maple, Acer rubrum. Thanks for the description. Red maple has about the same specific gravity (density) as black walnut and is a little denser than cherry. It has got a bad rap because of the term “soft”. It is anything but soft, although it is not as hard as the sugar maples (called the hard maples). I really like using it.
