Alder: General Characteristics:  Alder is cut from the western faces of the Cascade Mountains of Washington and Oregon. It is light reddish-brown in color with a very fine or even texture. Alder is relatively light in comparison to most hardwoods. The grain pattern is very similar to Cherry and Soft Maple.     Typical Applications:  Alder is popular for kitchen cabinet construction due to the upper grade’s resemblance to the more expensive Cherry and the lower grade’s rustic appearance. Alder is also used in many millwork applications including the construction of stile & rail doors.  Alder is cut and sold on its own unique grading standards. This species does not follow the National Hardwood Lumber Association grading rules. See the Lumber Grades Tab for additional information.     Availability:  Alder is typically available in various thicknesses in the following grades: Superior, Superior One Face, Premium Frame/Rustic, and Cabinet.
