Wood Species

Although each set of cabinetry passes through multiple inspection stations and hand-sorts, we are unable to control the frequency or location of knots, sapwood, streaks or other irregularities. Because this is a product of nature, each kitchen will have its own unique characteristics. 

Alder

Reddish-brown to pale yellow wood with soft, straight grain, even texture, and a subtle figure. Although we hand select our lumber, there will be small pin knots with larger knots possible on the back of doors. Alder mellows with age and exposure to light.
Alder

Alder - Knotty

Same as Alder plus larger, open secure knots. Open knots will be partially filled with resin as a means of securing the knot. Although we hand select our lumber, no effort will be made to evenly distribute the knots or those characteristics deemed ‘rustic’ and their occurrence would be described as random. Alder mellows with age and exposure to light.
Alder - Knotty

Beech

Strong wood with whitish to pale brown straight grain and small grey flecks. Although we hand select our lumber, you can expect some light mineral color and streaking which will be more noticeable on lighther finishes.
Beech

Beech - Rustic

Strong wood with whitish to pale brown straight grain and small grey flecks plus repaired knots of various sizes and heavy mineral coloring and streaking.
Beech - Rustic

Cherry

Durable, moderately strong hardwood with reddish-brown hue, straight grain and fine texture. Although we hand select our lumber, you can expect some slight mineral streaks, gum or pitch pockets and a small percentage of white sapwood. These characteristics are more noticeable on lighter finishes. Cherry wood darkens over time and exposure to light.

Hickory

A dense, tough, coarse-textured wood with white sapwood and reddish-brown heartwood. The color and graining patterns will have variations from black to brown in the heartwood to yellow in the sapwood. Certain stains will amplify this effect. Although we hand select our lumber, you can expect small amounts of dark mineral streaking, pin knots and even remnants of insect attacks.
Hickory

Maple

Heavy, straight-grained wood with a fine texture. The sapwood is white and selected for its light color; maple does not generally take dark colors well and may appear blotchy. On light colors the natural mineral streaks may not be concealed. Darker colors often conceal these mineral streaks.
Maple

Oak

Timeless hardwood with a coarse texture and a pinkish-red hue. The texture of the wood varies according to the rate of growth, but typically has a strong open grain pattern with a mix of straight and cathedral grain patterns. Although we hand select our lumber, you can expect small amounts of mineral streaking, pin knots and burls as well as occasional ray flakes.
Oak

Quarter-Sawn Oak

Stable wood with pale yellow-brown to pale brown tones, sometimes with a pinkish tint. As a result of the quarter sawing process, the wood exhibits a beautiful grain texture with a uniform straight grain and a striking ray flake figure. Although we hand select our lumber, you can expect occasional pin knots and light mineral streaks.

Craftwood

PAINTED FINISHES. This material is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down softwood into fibers, combining it with wax and resin, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. This material cuts well, has a more stable composition, allowing less movement and joint strain and provides a smooth surface that is ideal for painted finishes.
