Western Red Alder is a hardwood indigenous to the Northwest. The characteristics vary as with all hardwoods. Alder inclines generally to a finer, straighter grain and a mostly uniform texture, providing a luxurious look for most stains. The color of Alder is light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge creating color variations in the finished product.


Known for its beauty and high quality, Cherry is from the Northern Appalachians. The color will range from red to brown tones, pale yellow and white. Cherry may contain pin knots, mineral streaks and gum pockets among other natural characteristics. The hardwood darkens as it ages, giving it an elegant patina.

Knotty Alder

For the rustic mountain-cabin look, DeWils offers selected door styles in Knotty Alder. Selected for its rough appearance, it has both tight and loose knots, pitch pockets, dark patches and other blemishes to create that special look. The Alder is light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge, creating color variations. Knotty Alder is not avalible in the Expressions Collection.


A beautiful wood from the Ivory Coast region of Africa. The quarter sawn cut we chose presents a ribbon effect and straight grain that takes well to stains. This wood color is from a dull light brown to a dark reddish brown with some shades of pinkish brown. Mahogany is avalible in Horizons Collection only.

Quarter-Sawn White Oak

Quarter-sawn, white oak features varying colors of white or light grey, as well as some medium darker grey and brown. Fleck is also common, resulting in a reflecting effect.
