I guarantee The Fridge will tell you it’s Alder. If I were a betting man I’d even put money on it and win!

A good closeup shot of the end grain will usually help the experts around here with identification.

I always agree with TheFridge simply because he’s tight with Mike Ditka. Gotta respect that!

Just keep in mind that TheFridge is spreading confusion and keeping alive the most stale joke on the internet.

Well, alder here in the North West where it is abundant doesn’t look like that. It seldom has that much pattern and is often used in cabinet face frames as an inexpensive replacement for cherry. It is relatively soft, with little grain pattern, and easy to work.

Was I right or was I right? The Fridge is the alder expert hereabouts. Hands Down.
