Japanese maple (Acer Palmatum) spreads worldwide. However, most of them originate from Japan and also spread in Korea and China. Japanese maple can grow up to 15 m. Its multi-body has a powerful appearance. Maple wood is used in various fields such as furniture, panels, parquet, lumber, LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), Glulam (Glued Laminated Timber), musical instruments, instrument handles, stock, wooden beam, an airplane propeller, wooden bridge, etc. Mechanical properties are the most important characteristics especially for building elements used in buildings. It is of great importance to know these properties in the selection of materials for any use place. The density, bending strength, modulus of elasticity, impact strength and screw holding resistance of Japanese maple wood were investigated to provide technical data for users. Air dry density, bending strength, modulus of elasticity, impact strength and screw holding capacity (in tangent, radial, and transverse directions) were respectively; 574 kg/m3, 78 N/mm2, 6808 N/mm2, 0.217 kgm/cm2 and (35.1 N/mm2, 33.1 N/mm2 and 28.9 N/mm2). The results showed that Japanese maple wood has a low-density value, low bending strength, and impact strength, and a brittle structure compared to other maple species.
