Alder is a soft wood, sometimes with knots present. Alder darkens a good bit when a finish is applied and looks similar to Cherry. Since it is a soft wood, thin Alder works great for Laser Cutting and Engraving.
American Beech is often overlooked and underrated as a utility hardwood, but because of its durability and low cost, Beech can be exceptionally valuable for woodworkers.
Beech has a fine, even texture.
Aromatic Red Cedar wood has a straight grain, usually with knots present. Has a very fine texture with closed pores. Also called Eastern Red Cedar, or simply Red Cedar.
Note: Boards of Red Cedar wider than 4" will usualy have a glue seam or two in them.
Some pieces of Canarywood can be almost rainbow colored—with dark red streaks, along with the natural orange, yellow, and brown coloration. Canarywood is easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Good dimensional stability. Turns, glues and finishes well.
Curly Maple is Maple wood with a unique wavy, curly figure to the grain. The ripples in the grain pattern create a three dimensional effect that looks like the wood has 'curled' along the length of the board. The figure is most noticeable after a finish is applied. This is a medium figured wood, and some boards may be brown in color.
Quarter sawn White Oak is simply White Oak that has been cut from the log at a different angle. It has a finer texture and a dramatic flaking figure running perpendicular to the grain.
