Robert Irizarry Posted February 28, 2006 Report Share Posted February 28, 2006 I'm wondering what experiences people have had with finishing alder. I've done some searching on the Internet and come across indications that it is hard to finish as well as easy to finish!?! Anyway, I'm hoping that the fine folks here can set me straight. Specifically, I'm interested in staining alder darker. I understand that furniture makers sometimes use it as a substitute for cherry. I'm more interested in going with something a bit darker but I guess the techniques and/or issues are the same. Anybody use Danish oil finishes on it? Thanks!
