Moderately durable, yet lightweight with an even color, you can use alder for furniture and cabinetry. The tight grained wood is easy to work and goes easy on your tools. Use a clear finish to achieve a mild color that's darker than maple yet lighter than cherry; or stain it for a rustic 'old world' look as this wood takes stain unevenly, which creates a dramatic effect for those with that taste.

Sizes you can expect:

Thickness
1-7/8'' thick, surfaced smooth two sides (8/4 S2S)
lumber thickness
Widths
4''-6'' with the edges still rough. Straight line ripping on one edge is available as well (available above with your order).
lumber widths
Lengths
Up to 8'. Longer lengths may be available for local pick up or truck freight shipment. Contact us to verify.
