Wonderful. Very nice work. I love Alder. We have a lot of it here in Norway and it is a very underused wood here. I also love to carve in it.

As Stefang says Alder is very underused except in Cda?USA as structural wood for upholstered furniture. Would like to know how you finished it without blotching.

thanks for the comments everyone.
As for getting an even stain result. We mix wood glue to water at 80% water/20% glue. We sand our parts to 220. We condition and very lightly hand sand back at 220 (just to knock down raised grain). Hand sanding too hard on this step will not be good because it will close the grain too much. Then we stain and finish accordingly.
I bought different glues I could get and had mixed results. I found a Wurth white glue that works great for us. Titebond did not give us the results we were looking for.
Others will use a wash coat of sanding sealer which would achieve the same result from my own understanding.
We spray on the conditioner and wipe it back any excess so no runs. The process goes very fast.

The 45 degree corners are wonderful touch. Seperates the woodworkers from the CABINETMAKERS.
