Alder wood has been used in many ways throughout history. Common alder is
a member of the birch family, yet the fine, even texture of alder wood
makes it similar to cherry. We often refer alder as the “poor man’s cherry”
because of its beauty and affordable value. Its appearance and high quality
make it a popular choice for furniture and cabinets. Red alder grown in the
Pacific Northwest is medium in density and is the preferred specie used to
build furniture. Alder trees are a gift from Mother Nature since they replant
themselves in the forest by dropping its cones and plentiful.
Birch wood is a hardwood that is extremely strong and durable and so is a
smart choice for solid hardwood furniture. Birch wood has a beautiful
appearance; it is fine grained and has a pale color giving it an elegant look to
clean line furniture designs. In recent years, solid birch is finished in dark
espresso color because the heavy density in the lumber makes it harder to
dent and scratch, therefore, keeping it looking newer longer. Birch trees
used for furniture come from Europe and Russia fin colder climate regions. 
Real Solid Cherry wood is perhaps the most prized furniture hardwood in
America.  In fact, some of the highest valued antiques in the world are made
of cherry wood. Our craftsmen typically use natural solid cherry that is
grown in sustainable forests in Pennsylvania region, as that is home to the
finest cherry wood in the entire world. For each piece of furniture, natural
cherry boards are carefully selected for excellence in grain match, color and
width. When you own solid cherry furniture, you will experience the
“metamorphosis” of this wood by watching its beautiful glowing patina deepen
and become more beautiful with age.
Solid Hardwoods are primary milled from rubber wood trees which are
plantation grown and responsibly harvested in Southeast Asia. Trees are cut
down once they have aged and have completed their latex sap production
cycle. Amazingly, the rubber wood tree species is fast-growing, yet also very
high in density and provides a hard wood material, excellent for furniture
production. Today, the most well-known American furniture brands use solid
Asian hardwoods because of its durability and can be finished in to beautiful
high-end looks.
A-America is proud to claim to be the only manufacturer who has successfully
produced and imported Solid Hickory furniture. Why? It is because solid
hickory is an extremely difficult material to use in building furniture with.
Hickory is part of the pecan and walnut family and is usually from the
Pennsylvania region. Hickory wood is very hard, stiff, dense and shock
resistant. There are woods that are stronger than hickory and woods that
are harder, but the combination of strength, toughness, hardness, and
stiffness found in hickory wood is not found in any other commercial wood.
Only the most experienced craftsman can make beautiful our “Amish Quality”
hickory furniture.
Why will you love Solid Mahogany furniture? Because it is affordable value
and have exceptionally beautiful stature. With growing concern for our
environment and the deforestation of the rain forests around the world, it is
significant to inform our customers that none of the wood used in the
crafting of our furniture stems from the Indonesian rain forest. The farmers
carefully grow the trees in distinctive patterns, each field displaying trees in
various stages of growth. Once the mature trees are harvested, the fields
are re-seeded to maintain a healthy reforestation. The government controls
and regulates all wood cuttings. Mahogany is a medium density wood that has
color variances combining white, pink, peach, gray and brown wood tones to
create a more exotic look with stunning with unique patterns that adds
character to your home.
A top trend in home décor is furnishings made of Solid Mango wood. Yes, the
very same trees providing us with delicious mango fruits can age and when
they are done giving out fruits, they can be made in to beautiful furniture.
Mango trees are fast-growing and plantation grown in Southeast Asia region.
Mango wood has unique “Tigered” stripes and multitudes of grain and color
variations. Perhaps its best character would be the “Glow” in the wood once
finished. It is a hard wood which will provide durability even with everyday
usage. Mango lumber is best used in a rustic finish and craftsman designs. It
is easy to love this beautiful, exotic wood that is also an affordable value.
Red maple, which is also called Soft Maple is a medium-high density wood,
from deciduous trees in eastern North America. Soft maple takes any finish
colors well, though like all maple, its grain and color varies from white to
gray tones with mineral deposits. These natural wood characteristics are
becoming more and more sought after because it adds an “Organic” feel to
furniture. Soft maple can be mixed in production of furniture with birch wood
to create a better value.
Beautiful Solid Oak wood adapts well in a wide range of light to dark finishes
to create modern or traditional designs. The oak wood is durable and long
lasting because oak trees take their time to grow slowly to produce high
density material. It is no wonder that some of the most treasured American
antiques are made of oak. If fact with proper care, you can continue using
this oak furniture for even a century so what you buy today will be your
children’s heirlooms. Oak wood is known to be scratch, stain and dust
resistance; hence it does not need regular cleaning like other woods.
