Knotty Alder

Also known as Premium Frame Alder direct from the Pacific Northwest. Because of its grain pattern, alder is frequently used as a substitute for walnut and cherry. Knotty alder cabinets & mouldings are very popular in high end homes as well as rustic cabins. Alder machines well and is excellent for turning. It nails, screws and glues well, and can be sanded, painted, or stained to a good finish. When stained, it blends with walnut, mahogany or cherry. It dries easily with little degrade and has good dimensional stability after drying. Alder, a relative of birch, is almost white when freshly cut but quickly changes on exposure to air, becoming light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. Heartwood is formed only in trees of advanced age and there is no visible boundary between sap and heartwood. The wood is fairly straight-grained with a uniform texture Available In: 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 8/4 & 10/4 Thickness
