This photo demonstrates the variation of color that exists within the same tree. Taken at the Crystal Cabinet Manufacturing Plant, these are trim strips cut from the same log of an Alder tree. Trees develop different coloring based on the minerals, weather and region of where they live and grow. An Eastern Maple has different coloring than that of a Pacific Maple, and some woods will have a larger variation than others. So next time you are looking at a piece of furniture or a cabinet door, look a little deeper to appreciate its natural beauty, because wood is just as unique and extraordinary as a snowflake, a star, or a child.
