Knotty Alder is a versatile, medium density hardwood with a fairly straight grain pattern similar to cherry. The color is uniform, yet ranges from a reddish-brown to a light tan or honey with reddish or peach hues. Knots that vary in size, quantity, and location are acceptable characteristic of Knotty Alder. Noticeable stain and patina characteristics that alternate in visibility from dark spots that absorb excessive stain, to very light spots absorbing minimal stain, may exist due to the Alder wood having soft and hardwood characteristics.
