Quartered Clear Red Alder veneer is a fine wood to use in many facets. Alder has been a staple in plywood manufacturing because it is a solid wood. The tight grain is great for any woodworker. It is a reddish brown wood and looks great when used for cabinetry and other similar venues. The quartered cut gives it an extra straight grain when compared to flat cut.
Alder Red can be found in the Pacific Coast of Canada and the United States. The common names are Quarter Sawn Western Alder and Quarter Cut Oregon Alder.
