Alder is a smooth fine grained hardwood with consistent color, stability and straight grain similar to Cherry. Color may vary from pale pinkish-brown to light tan or honey color. Knots are tight and sound 1/4" or less, distributed randomly. Alder is moderately lightweight with low shock resistance.
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.
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.
Quarter Sawn White Oak
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.
A smooth, paintable substrate (MDF) is used for cope and stick doors and drawer fronts.
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.
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.
