Alder & Knotty Alder


Alder is a reddish-brown to pale yellow wood with a soft, straight grain, even texture, and a subtle figure.  Although we hand select our lumber, there will be small pin knots with larger knots possible on the backs of doors.  Alder mellows with age and exposure to light.

Knotty Alder

Both open and closed knots of various sizes will be present in the lumber and plywood ends.  Open knots will be partially filled with resin as a means of securing the knot.  Although we hand select our lumber, no effort will be made to evenly distribute knots or those characteristics deemed “rustic” and their occurrence would be described as random.
