I’ve not had a problem doing this. I think mostly the problem comes sanding and the dust coloring the maple. Once the sanding is over and cleaned up there shouldn’t be any bleed over. What type of finish are you going to apply? If you are planning on an oil base finish, wipe a part of the under side w/ mineral spirits. If it doesn’t bleed you are good to go. If it does bleed then consider sealing it w/ shellac or use a water base finish.
