Available Wood Species:
- Select Alder– a medium density hardwood that features a color range of light brown with reddish or peach hues. Natural characteristics include small sound knots, modular rays, curly grain, pin holes, and mineral streaks. This fairly straight-grained hardwood has a uniform texture and is often chosen for its color stability.
- Knotty Alder– a medium density hardwood that features a color range of light brown with reddish or peach hues. Natural characteristics of this wood specie include small and large split knots and open knots that vary in size, shape and color and may be completely through the wood. In addition modular rays, curly grain, mineral stains, etc. are naturally occurring wood characteristics.
- Select Cherry and Painted Cherry– Cherry ranges in color from white to red and on to a deep, rich brown. Exposure to natural light in the home will cause the color of the wood to darken over time. The natural wood colors will deepen, turning the darker areas of the wood a dark, reddish brown, while the lighter areas darken to shades of yellow and brown. These wood color changes are natural, and should be expected in any cherry cabinetry.
- Knotty Cherry– Knotty Cherry allows knots, split knots and other natural character marks and defects. Acceptable characteristics include knots that vary in size, shape and color. Knotty Cherry ranges in color from white to red and on to a deep rich brown with gum pockets, mineral streaks and pin knots. Exposure to natural light will cause the wood color to darken over time. These color changes and characteristics are natural, and should be expected with any Knotty Cherry cabinetry.
- Hickory– Hickory is a dense, heavy wood with both closed and open wood grain. The natural color of this wood has a wide array of color, ranging from hues of white to chocolate brown. This wood has characteristic markings, mineral streaks and random knots that are naturally occurring and add to the wood’s appeal.
- Maple and Painted Maple– Maple is a hardwood with a tight, uniform grain that tends to have very little definition and varies in color from white to cream to light brown with pale streaks of gold, pink, and brown throughout. Maple may exhibit small areas that are reminiscent of bird’s eyes, curly grain and may contain random small black mineral streaks.
- Red Oak– Oak is a strong, open-grained wood that ranges in color from salmon pink to white. It is sometimes streaked with green, yellow and black mineral deposits and may contain knots and grain veins that are naturally characteristic of the wood.
- Quarter Sawn White Oak– Quarter Sawn White Oak has unique grain patterns that are producedÂ by quartering the log, then cutting the quarter using the heart as the edge rather than the center. The distinguishing characteristic of Quarter Sawn is the ‘rays’ or ‘flecks’ that appear in random patterns across the grain of the wood. These rays can give the appearance of ‘tiger stripes’. Knots tend to be long and slender often running from edge to edge instead of the traditional shape associated with knots.
- Pine– Pine is a soft wood that ranges in color from vanilla to brown with a reddish hue, is light in weight, and contains sound ornamental knots that vary in size, shape and color. Pine will exhibit mineral streaks, curly grain and worm tracking. Pine may also darken with age or take on a yellowish/orange cast as it mellows with age.
- MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard)– Select Mouser Custom Cabinetry door styles are produced from medium density fiberboard. This “MDF” material does not expand and contract as solid wood does. Due to the nature of MDF material, machined and routed areas may exhibit slight imperfections or rough spots after the finish has been applied.
- Additional Wood Species Availability– Exotic Woods, Select Wood Species and Foil Product offerings are available as part of our Prizma EuroStyle product line. Current exotic wood specie selections include Bamboo, Reconstituted Wenge, and Reconstituted Zebrawood.
