Alder Wood

Alder is a semi-hard wood that is easy to work with both hand and machine tools; it stains well and is easy to sand. Alder wood’s color ranges from light tan to light brown, even sometimes reddish brown. Its grain is generally straight and uniform in texture, similar to Birch wood. At CPSW we carry a selection of alder slabs that boast vibrant color and character that can be viewed here.
