Wood Species for Custom Cabinetry
A Ward Design offers a variety of custom cabinet wood types to choose from, making every custom cabinetry order truly unique. Each wood species has it’s own unique set of characteristics, and when coupled with finishes and door styles, can truly make your custom cabinets an expression of your personal style. The beauty of natural wood is in its variation of color and grain. Every piece is unique and the individual characteristics are not to be misconstrued as defects.
A Ward Design offers the following custom cabinet wood types:
Red Oak has a very strong open grain pattern that varies from straight to wild patterns. Color will vary from light to medium brown, often with a reddish cast. Some pin burls, dark mineral streaks, and/or white sapwood may occur, especially in machined areas.
Distressed Knotty Pine is a rustic moderately soft closed grain wood that is yellowish creamy white in color and is accented with knots. Some red or black knots, split knots and possible mineral streaks enhance the rustic beauty of this wood.
Cherry is an attractive closed grain wood that is reddish in color. Sapwood can be light brown to white and may show up most often on machined areas of doors. Dark mineral streaks and pin burls are normal characteristics of the beautiful wood.
Quarter Sawn White Oak is pale brown to dark brown in color with a greenish gray tinge. The grain is very straight with a relatively porous open texture. Distinctive ray and fleck patterns may also be present.
Walnut is a closed grain wood commonly known as American Black walnut. Color will vary from off white, to light grey-brown, to deep rich chocolate brown. Streaky color, curly grain, mineral streaks, and pin knots are to be expected.
