   What's the alder used for? I always think of it as a very small shrubby tree and used for smoker wood on all the Alaska shows. Never thought of it getting big enough for lumber.

There's about 2 dozen different species of Alder. That would be Western Red Alder, which grows into a respectable tree. Wood is a light coloured softer hardwood, but can be used for furniture and musical instruments as well as more utility stuff.  Probably comparable to soft maple or Tulip Poplar? 
Other species are smaller and in a cold climate probably not much more than shrubs.

Alder is what I built my cabinet faces out of and my interior doors. Manzanita makes great table legs with mesquite or juniper slab tops. Small juniper makes very strong table legs too.

Farm29, just looking at the bark & log ends, I would have said Walnut too, but pecans don't grow on Walnut trees without some serious grafting.  Yes, it will be interesting to crack them open.

Lawg Dawg:  Yes.  :)

LD, are you asking about white oak, or the building for a work shop.  Both look great.  How did you get that square cant out of that round log with out cutting it open?
