Alder Kitchen Cabinets

River Valley Cabinet Works For anyone interested, I can remember when alder was not available commercially outside of the Pacific Northwest. I know that, because I used to travel regularly to Oregon. I have a friend with whom i used to work who owns a cabinet shop out there. He uses Alder frequently. If memory serves me, he referred to Alder as a weed tree. Alder gained prominence on the national scene as a substitute for Cherry. “Red Alder is usually sold in two different grades: knotty, and clear. Knotty Red Alder is likely to be very inexpensive, on par with other domestic utility woods such as Poplar or Aspen. Clear Red Alder is likely to cost a bit more, closer to other cabinet hardwoods such as Birch or Maple.” Sourced from The Wood Database”Because of its moderate specific gravity, red alder is not an exceptionally strong wood. In many applications this will be apparent as indentations on the surface of the wood. In furniture applications, it may be necessary to redesign joints and the sizes of structural parts to compensate for the often slightly lower strength values of red alder. Red alder holds nails well and does not readily split when nails are driven into it. Lower grades of red alder perform adequately as pallet material. See Appendix 1, Table 3 for average mechanical properties for small, clear specimens.” Sourced from the Oregon Wood Innovation Center(OSU)It’s never a good idea to use certain types of wood in certain types of environment. If maple were used in a pool enclosure in Ohio, it would warp there as well.

Alder Cabinets Light Brown With Reddish Undertones Alder kitchen cabinets are characterized by light brown and reddish undertones. Alder has a straight and even-textured wood grain with indistinct boundaries between the heartwood and the sapwood. Alder has a stable staining surface. Rustic Alder Cabinets Rustic alder kitchen cabinets have a more dramatic grain and may contain a variety of pin holes, open and closed knots of various sizes and colors, small cracks, worm holes, worm tracks, bird pecks, mineral streaks and grain variations. Some knots may have holes up to approximately ¾-inch in diameter through the panel. The holes created by open knots can pass completely through the cabinet door. The larger holes remain unfilled in order to contribute to the desired rustic look. Alder and Rustic Alder wood is softer and moderately light in weight.
