Is alder wood good for kitchen cabinets. I am in the Southwest and alder is currently the highest demand wood for high-end cabinets. Consequently, the prices have risen from a low of 75 cents per BF for the frame grade knotty alder to a current high of $2.25 and the FAS alder has gone from $1.85 to $3.05, and this is all in the past two years. Alder veneer plywood has always been expensive at around $75 per 4X8 sheet. I just paid $3.39 for select and better. The quality was not what you would expect for S&B. The wood looked as though it came from immature scrubby trees. Prices are generally higher here in the southwest.
Is alder wood good for kitchen cabinets. Alder is interesting stuff. When I started in business in Southern California in 1974, it was considered a weed tree. It was never even logged except when a lumber company was cutting down a stand of Douglas fir, and they would cut adjacent alder stands along with it. You could get it cheap, but it was rarely available in wide or long pieces. I was told that the trees don't get very big. The first use I ever saw it being put to was by cabinet door companies which would use it for the frames of frame and panel doors (also called "drop panel doors") with birch veneered 1/4" plywood for the panel. In those days, we always stained cabinets dark, so the startling difference in color between alder and birch didn't much matter.
