any comments on selecting Alder over cherry for a bathroom? Would be stained a dark warm brown. I am curious about effects of moisture over time in master bathroom, if any effects.

Can anyone tell me which is the most expensive wood of cherry, mahogany, or walnut? I realize there are different subcategories of each, but in general, what is the scale? Thanks.

Generally speaking -- at least here in Southern California -- cherry is less expensive than walnut. I don't work with mahogany but I do know that the type of mahogany you choose will really affect the price. My best suggestion is that you call a local hardwood lumber supply yard in your area and ask them. Good luck!
