Wood Species Explained

| Christina at James+James

Most of our table styles are pictured and priced in Knotty Alder hardwood and all our finish colors on Knotty Alder can be found here. 

We can build out of just about any American hardwood species, but most commonly we build in White Oak, Red Oak, Black Walnut and Maple. Each wood species takes finish a little differently, which means that each table will have a different color and overall look depending on what wood species it’s built in.

Knotty Alder hardwood is the most budget-friendly wood species, Maple is the next step up in price range, with Oak and Black Walnut being the most premium wood species.

Here’s a quick look at those same finish color options on each wood species:

Maple Hardwood

White Oak 

Red Oak

Black Walnut
