Highest Quality Wood Offerings

BeautIFUL | DurabLE | built to last

Select Cherry

Our Cherry is “Select” grade, hand-sanded and hand-rubbed to bring out the deep rich grain patterns unique to this cherished wood. Known as the cabinet maker’s wood, cherry has been a traditional American favorite for generations.

Select Red Oak

One of America’s most plentiful and popular hardwoods, this strong, versatile breed can be used to accent any decor. This time-honored hardwood that will give your kitchen a classic look and provide years of reliable use.


Consider hickory wood if you are looking for rustic, durable cabinetry. The extreme color variations and interesting grain patterns give hickory its unique  look. The natural mineral marks also lend additional interest and character to this beautiful wood. Among the hardest woods available in North America, this wood selection ensures years of durability.

Select Red Birch

Select Red Birch is, perhaps, our most unique wood. Red Birch is selected only from the golden-brown heartwood of the birch tree. The grain patterns tend to be more interesting because the red birch is selected from the center of the tree. When finished in natural or honey glow stain, the grain patterns take on a burnished, sometimes iridescent look.

Quarter-Sawn White Oak

The desire for this wood lies in its distinctive grain pattern. Stately vertical grains run parallel to each other, broken only by Medullary Ray Fleck – unique to Quarter-sawn White Oak, adding a touch of interest, by refracting light. Alluring aesthetics and superior structural qualities of Quarter-sawn White Oak are what moved great artisans to use it, especially during the craftsman era. Rediscover the age of true quality craftsmanship right in your own kitchen!

Select Maple

Hard maple is graded to the level of “select.” This durable wood features a very delicate grain pattern that blends well with all decorating motifs from traditional to contemporary. When Maple is finished with our light or Niagara Mist stains, the delicate grain patterns create a burnished look. No matter the finish, expect a lifetime of beauty and durability from this popular hardwood.

Rustic Hickory

Hickory is well-suited for rustic decor styles due to the nature of its grain patterns. Rustic-grade Hickory turns it up a notch with greater variation and contrast in wood grains, along with a greater tolerance for knots and mineral marks. Rustic Hickory is the perfect choice to create the warmth of a rustic cabin feel.


Our Walnut is steamed, blending lighter sapwood with deeper heartwood. Colors offer a high contrast, ranging from creamy brown to a beautiful dark chocolate brown with rich purplish undertones. Black walnut is normally straight-grained and is noted for its beautiful grain character, producing more figure variation than any other wood.

Rustic Cherry

Cherry is most often chosen for its elegant grain patterns and sophisticated look. Rustic Cherry reveals another dimension to this surprisingly versatile wood. With a higher tolerance for grain variation, knots and mineral marks,  these imperfections give our Rustic Cherry warmth and character.
