Alder cabinets: pros and cons? Pictures?
The deadline is upon me to finalize my wood species and color for my cabinets and I'm still undecided. Thought I'd do maple, but don't like the sample colors from my custom cabinet guy. Concerned about it yellowing and being blotchy as it doesn't take stain well. Also considering natural cherry but concerned about how it will darken over time. Got a sample of alder (not knotty) today with some stains applied but don't know much about it other than it is softer than cherry and can be blotchy. Can you help?
