the exterior cabinetry is alder with a stain and glazed dark brown. the island is a maple with a wwhite wash and glazed to match. the client couldn’t wait to start using it as the second picture shows. we built some custom accessories like a spice rack, knife drawer and appliance lift. this project followed the hardwood floor install. all doors and drawers are soft close.

thank you, we (my wife and i) like alder as well, it doesn’t get the blotchy stain affect that cherry can sometimes have and the color doesn’t darken like cherry over time. we do a variety of work in walnut, hickory, maple, cherry and alder.
