Rustic Alder

Rustic Alder Wood - Birch Wood Furniture


Sometimes referred to as “Knotty Alder,” Rustic Alder is part of the birch family. Surprisingly light and slightly soft for a hardwood, Alder is easy to work with and an ideal solid wood for fine furniture. You can find Rustic Alder in cabinetry, furniture, doors, molding and turnings. Alder has a fairly straight grain and takes stains very well. Knots, mineral streaks, and some grain fuzz is common and are not considered defects but rather add to the character of the piece.


Our Rustic Alder finishes include knots, glazing and distressing. Our finish is applied by hand and distressed using an extensive, multi-step process. Due to the natural grain variations in the wood and hand-applied finishing process, each piece is unique. The final finish and distressing WILL VARY in lightness and darkness, etc. The antiqued quality of our Rustic Woods is created through a proprietary aging process to enhance its welcoming appeal.
