Alder, is often called the versatile hardwood for its workability, availability, and finishing. It is an incredibly predictable material, making it a favorite of woodworkers. It can be used by itself or together with other species. Alder is a fine grained wood, very similar to that of cherry, birch and maple wood. It is used in both veneer and solid wood applications. This fine homogeneous grain structure and light consistent color in both the heartwood and sapwood make it easy to form, fasten and finish. When staining is desired, Alder can easily match Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Pecan, Mahogany, or many other hues of wood. This is possible because sap discoloration and mineral streaks are absent in particular type of wood, making Alder easy to finish with clear ‘fruitwood’ stains. When you purchase these alder wood clothing hangers you’re purchasing a small piece of American ingenuity and decades of craftsmanship.
