Alder Edge Glued Panels & Worktops

Alder panel (3-layer)Occuring in Europe from Scandinavia and north Russia southwards, Alder is common throughout the British Isles and is found in north Africa and western Asia.

There is no distinction in colour between Alder sapwood and heartwood, which is formed only in trees of advanced age - the wood being a dull, light reddish-brown colour, of fine-texture without lustre, and light in weight (about 530 kg/m when dried).

It is easy to work and finish provided tools are kept sharpened, and takes glue, stains and polish, and nails and screws satisfactorily.

Both full length and finger jointed alder panels are regularly used as alder worktops, and in the manufacture of all types of furniture.
