Clear Alder

Characteristics of Clear Alder

  • Light, soft hardwood, medium density, close-grained wood with a uniform texture (with the exception of the knots in Knotty Alder) and subtly varying wavy grain pattern.
  • Similar appearance to Cherry, but less dent-resistant.
  • Less expensive than Cherry.
  • Knotty Alder is a good alternative to Knotty Pine; it is harder and accepts stain more uniformly.
  • Alder lends a natural, rich look to cabinetry; Knotty Alder is distinctively rustic.
