help contemporary cherry, sap wood- nervous
I found a place that does cabinets.
I wanted slab doors in natural cherry. I saw some startling contrast in some of the doors that they had installed which I really disliked. Since the I have read about sap wood and cherry's different darkeing characteristics.
Also read that alder (which kind of looks like cherry to me- apparently to many people) can be stained to look like cherry. but then I read about blotching and also dont like the alder stuff I have found on the net so far.
I am trying to find some good pictures of contemporary cherry cabinets, alder cabinets which dont have too much variation. How can I get my cabinet maker (they buy their doors) to give me a consistently colored wood ?
At this point I am about to give up and do laminate cherry doors which are at least consistent...
