*Whenever possible, we send full thickness up to 1 7/8". If you need top to be specifically 1 3/4",

Alder Perfect Plank is used for a myriad of interior purposes, including kitchen counter tops and
islands, restaurant tables, and furniture parts of all types. It is similar in appearance, texture and density
to its sister species, Pacific Coast Maple. Although most woodworkers would regard Alder as the
superior species, it currently sells for a lower price than Maple.
Alder is more machinable than maple and is highly prized for its ability to accept stains. Thus, it
frequently is treated in order to permit its substitution for Cherry, Walnut, and Mahogany. Available
in thicknesses of 1 3/8" and 1 3/4", Alder Perfect Plank is made with laminations anywhere from 3/4" to
2" wide. They are then glued face-to-face with water resistant polyvinyl glue to form an edge-grain
Butcher Block product. Any natural or manufactured defects are patched and sanded clean to yield a 1-
side-good product. Reverse side is not patched and may contain small natural/manufacturer defects.
Splashboard : 3/4 x 4"--$3.00 per lineal ft. 3/4 x 6"--$4.00 per lineal foot (with purchase
of similar butcher block sizes.)
