ALDER

Finishing of Alder

Alder   has   a   beautiful   grain   that   looks   similar   to   cherry   when   finished.   The   soft   flowing   grain   brings warmth   to   any   room   in   your   home.      We   recommend   stains   on   Alder   since   the   grain   has   a   beauty   like   no other.  We do not recommend painting Alder. Native Regions Red   Alder   grows   primarily   along   the   coast   in   the   Pacific   North   West   from   Southern   Alaska   to   Northern California.   It   thrives   in   elevations   below   2000   feet   and   in   areas   that   are   moist,   and   where   it   is   not   densely forested   with   other   trees   such   as   fir   or   pine.   Also,   it   is   usually   one   of   the   species   that   first   appears   after natural disasters have destroyed the landscape.   Characteristics Red   alder   is   light   brown   in   color   with   yellow   and   reddish   streaks   throughout.   It   has   a   fine   textured   with small   pores   and   a   relatively   straight   grain   pattern.   It   weighs   an   average   of   28   lbs/cu.   ft.,   which   ranks   it   as one   of   the   lighter   hardwoods.   It   is   considered   a   soft   hardwood,   and   as   a   result   it   ranks   below   average   for shock   resistance,   and   can   be   dented   fairly   easy.   Also,   it   ranks   below   average   for   stiffness.   Alder   is   not extremely durable and should not be used for outdoor purposes. Properties Alder   has   very   good   workability   properties   with   power   machines   as   well   as   hand   tools. Also,   it   accepts   most all   types   of   glue   well.   It   possesses   average   holding   ability   for   fasteners,   but   on   the   positive   side,   it   does   not require   pre-drilling.   Alder   will   accept   clear   finishes   and   paint   well,   but   care   must   be   taken   when   applying stain   due   to   its   soft   qualities.   Stains   tend   to   be   absorbed   unevenly   into   the   wood,   thus   causing   blotching.   To prevent   blotching,   a   shellac   wash   coat   is   recommended   prior   to   staining. This   will   allow   for   a   more   uniform and   pleasing   stain   job.      However,   general   finishes   products   work   wonderfully   on   Alder.      Some   of   common darker stains can cause blotchie areas, and we try to avoid using them.   Main Uses Alder   is   primarily   used   for   doors,   paneling,   shutters,   millwork,   and   casework   and   furniture.         Due   to   the soft nature of the wood, it ranked above average for turning projects, and excellent for carvings.
