Real Wood Construction & Materials Information:
The founders of Whittier Wood, Gordon Whittier and Evert Slijper both had extensive lumber experience and saw the value in the northwest native Alder hardwood species. It has strength, a fine grain and smooth texture. By many local woodworkers, it had been known as the great imitator. The beauty of Alder is that it could be stained to match other more expensive hardwoods at a fraction of the price. The amazing Alder tree is capable of growing to a height of 12'-15' in just 15 months. In 10-15 years, it has reached its mature height of 30'-40'. Today, in part, due to the introduction of Alder to a broader market by Whittier Wood Products, the species is highly regarded and sought after by fine furniture manufacturers around the world. This increase in demand continues to insure support for a decade's long replanting program.
Whittier Wood believes that they can provide a high quality product made from natural resources while still supporting our environment. Over 91% of the lumber purchased is shipped as furniture parts. The unusable portion of lumber (such as knots or bark) is cut out and ground into sawdust. This material is reclaimed and sold to make particle board, briquettes, wood pellets and pulp for paper. Whittier use the highest possible amount of recycled paper in their cartons (65%-70%), while maintaining the integrity of the carton. Factory wide, Whittier recycles paper, metal, cardboard, glass and oil.
