This Pacific Northwest hardwood is not among the most well known woods, but we strive to bring you a diverse selection. Alder is a beautiful wood species that proves itself versatile in many applications. Alder has the look and feel of natural Cherry. It stains well to almost any color but looks great without stain. It will not darken over the years as some woods tend to do.
This popular wood has a warm and pale coloration. It is a versatile species, often used in a diverse range of applications, such as wood paneling, ships and boats, joinery, drawing boards, organ parts, and more. This stable and highly priced wood is often sought after in creating engineer's patterns and projects that require fine detail.
When given a natural finish, Cherry has a rather light coloration. Throughout the years, Cherry will take on the darker red color that many associate with this wood. If you like the natural appearance of Cherry, but do not want a wood that will darken with age, Alder is an excellent alternative with a similar appearance.
Red Oak is similar to White Oak in appearance, but has smaller rays. This straight-grained wood has a coarse texture.
In its natural state, Mahogany has a light brown coloration, as with natural Walnut. It also includes subtle hints of orange. With stain, Mahogany assumes the popular dark reddish brown color that most are familiar with.
Redwood has a rich dark brown coloration and a beautiful texture. This softwood is well known for its insulating qualities, thanks to its small cell structure including countless air-filled cavities. Redwood is lightweight when compared to other heartwood grades. It also has superior insect repellent qualities.
Maple is a beautiful pale wood, the lightest of our selection. It is very strong and stable. Over time, Maple takes on a yellowish coloration. Maple tends to stain unevenly, so we advise against it.
If you prefer a dark and rich wood, Walnut is an excellent choice. In its natural state, Walnut is available with both darker and lighter coloration. Walnut pairs well with Mahogany and benefits from the reddish tint of a Red Oak stain.
