Is alder wood good for kitchen cabinets. In Arizona, alder is very popular. 60% of my cabinets are made of alder. Half of this is knotty alder for the rustic look, and superior for the other half who want the cherry look but can't afford it. I will admit it is softer than cherry or maple, but it machines very well and my shaper bits don't get wasted as often. Alder here goes for 3.04 a BF in the superior select and 1.85 a BF for a knotty grade. The plywood comes in either good two sides or a-4 grade (one side has a birch veneer on it). 1/2" MDF core is running about 52.00 a sheet and the 3/4" is 58.00 a sheet. Personally, I like working with it better than hickory or maple, and it takes stains much better also. I've never had a call back on it because it was damaged from being too soft. I also make a lot of my entry doors out of it, because it is very easy to distress and give that southwest look to it.
Is alder wood good for kitchen cabinets. To many non-woodworkers or loggers, alder is still considered a weed. I grew up in the Northwest with a million of these on our property. My dad cursed them at least once a week while I was growing up (and I'm talking recent - I'm only 26). They grow like weeds. He used to cut them up for firewood (as did everyone), and I mean large trees. I told him about a year ago what those trees would be worth and he about fell over! Truth is, I know many who still consider them weeds. However, people are starting to catch on. I recently did cabinetry for a man in our church who runs his own small logging business and he has been buying land with alders on it and selling it for veneer - he gets more for it than you would believe. My dad is letting all those young alders, now around 40' tall, grow. Share this "Is Alder Wood Good for Kitchen Cabinets?
