I'm looking at either LW Mountain or Somerset 3/4-in prefinished maple (in cherry) for my kitchen. Does anyone have experience with these brands or, even better, photos of them installed? Thanks!

LW is Chinese maple, lighter in weight and darker in color. I believe it is softer than N Amer. maple but have not seen Janka results for it. MOST Somerset is USA maple but not all of it. The US maple is the better product. Find out the country of origin.
