Grade

Alder is a very light brown wood with a yellow or pinkish, maybe even light reddish tinge with a fine grain and smooth texture. It is one of the fastest growing hardwoods, fully maturing in just 10 – 15 years, making it a sustainable, eco-friendly material. Due to its light color and ability to absorb stain well, alder can be stained to resemble almost any kind of wood, creating an expensive look at a fraction of the cost. Alder's hardness rating is 590 on the Janka scale and is a popular choice for “shabby chic” décor.
