Select a Wood Species
Character Red Oak
Natural Yellow Birch hardwoods are chosen for their dramatic color variation and usually smooth grain. Birch hardwoods will exhibit dramatic color variation from a creamy color to a medium brown. Characteristics such as shiny burl wood, grain variation, small pin knots and mineral stains may also be present. Birch should not be chosen as an alternative to Maple - although the two wood species may sometimes be similar in texture, Birch hardwoods will exhibit dramatic color and shade variation. Although Birch is relatively light in weight, it is hard and strong with excellent shock resistance.
Character Cherry will have the same general characteristics of Cherry, but with more rustic features apparent. You can expect more random closed knots of unlimited size and filled knots of up to 3/4" than standard Cherry. However, these characteristics will not compromise the structural integrity of the product. Mineral streaks and pin holes will be more numberous and of unlimited size.
Character Red Oak will have the same general characteristics of Red Oak, but with more rustic features apparent. You can expect more random closed knots of unlimited size and filled knots of up to 3/4" than standard Red Oak. However, these characteristics will not compromise the structural integrity of the product. Mineral streaks will be more numberous and of unlimited size.
Cherry hardwoods are chosen for their smooth texture, rich color and flowing grain patterns. In its natural state, cherry has a predominantly pinkish hue and may range in color from nearly white to pink to dark brown. Some selections can even exhibit shades of yellow, green and gray. Small gum spots, "pin" holes, pitch pockets and mineral flecks are characteristics. Cherry will darken (mellow) with age due to exposure to sunlight - this color change can occur gradually or rapidly depending on the amount and intensity of exposure. Cherry is strong, moderately hard and has high resistance to shock.
Hickory is a relatively smooth hardwood chosen for its dramatic color and shade variation and its prominent grain. Color within the same stave of wood and across a door can vary from a nearly white color to medium brown. Bird pecks, small pin knots and mineral streaks are common. Hickory is an exceptionally heavy and hard wood with high shock resistance.
Western Red Knotty Alder is a smooth, fine-grained hardwood with a straight grain pattern similar to Cherry. The color may vary from pale pinkish-brown to a light tan or honey color. Knotty Alder is chosen for its rugged appearance. Knots will be random in size and distribution and will range from tight sound knots to very rustic, split and open knots. Knotty Alder is moderately lightweight with low shock resistance.
Mahogany, also known as African Mahogany, has a straight, open grain and a color that ranges from yellow-brown to dark red depending on the soil and region in which it grew. Mahogany mellows with age to become a rich, dark red-brown. Its open grain imparts a slight "pinholed" texture to the final finish surface. Although it is mostly straight grained, some cuts will exhibit fiddleback, quilt or ribboning patterns. Mahogany is a strong and heavy wood. Available when the Premium Upgrade Package is specified.
Maple hardwoods are selected for their smooth texture, uniform grain and characteristic light color. Maple is predominantly a creamy white color and may exhibit little color variation from white to a light gray or tan. Maple will exhibit random mineral streaks. These dark sreaks are mineral deposits absorbed from the soil in which the tree grew and are naturally occurring variation. "Worm tracks" and occasional "birds-eye" patterns are also characteristic. Maple will slightly mellow with age due to natural exposure to light and air. Due to the density and hardness of Maple, natural expansion and contraction may be more apparent at joints than with softer hardwoods. Maple is a hard, strong wood with excellent shock resistance.
Quarter Sawn White Oak
A smooth hardwood is used for cabinet face frames and stiles and rails of doors and drawer fronts on orders specified with an Enamel finish. A smooth, "paintable" substrate (MDF, etc.) is used for all door/drawer front panels, "Slab" draw fronts and all plywood cabinet components to ensure good adhesion and a smooth finish.
Because of the manner in which the lumber is sliced from the log, a straight and consistent grain pattern is achieved with an attractive and random "flake" across the grain.(Less lumber is yielded with quarter slicing which affects lumber pricing, but it is the only way to achieve the desired grain patterns.) White Oak will exhibit some color variation from a light grayish tan to brown. White Oak is a strong and heavy hardwood with high shock resistance.
Red Oak hardwoods are chosen for their prominent and beautiful, open grain patterns varying from a close-knit vertical grain to a characteristic cathedral or arched pattern. Some color variation from reddish tan to medium brown is possible in its natural state. Occasional pin knots and mineral streaks are also characteristics. Red Oak is abundant, strong and heavy hardwood with high shock resistance.
Select Alder shares the basic characteristic of Knotty Alder; smooth, straight grain similar to Cherry and color that ranges from pale pinkish-brown to light tan or honey color. Select Alder has a less rustic appearance than Knotty Alder, with few, smaller, open knots.
Walnut is normally straight grain and is noted for its beautiful grain character, producing more figure variation than any other wood. Over the years the wood develops a lustrous patina. Heartwood is a rich chocolate or purplish brown in color. Walnut is a strong, stable wood with high shock resistance. Walnut is a strong and heavy wood.
