Sycamore, also known as Harewood is a member of the Maple family, found in Europe. It is light yellow in colour and is often a very clean wood, with a straight, fine grain.

The wood is often pippy. However, these pips are usually a very similar colour to the rest of the wood making them hardly visible.
