Cabinetry - Can you please tell me the wood species these cabinets are made from?

That really sounds great! one thing to try with coloring the alder is a die as opposed to pigment stain what I think is happening is that in order to get the color right your having to use a heavy coat of the stain witch is basically a diluted paint where as a die will in fact be absorbed by the wood enhancing the grain instead of resting on the surface and in the open pores obscuring the wood.

With the scale of your project it sounds like the added expense of using walnut will be worth it and I think it will also tie in better considering the Walnut butcher block.

I hope we can see pictures soon!

@rogerc We no longer have the spec sheets from our cabinet builder on this particular project. However, our project manager for The Bear Trap remembers the kitchen cabinets to be made from Mahogany. And as @Gary Finley says, the stain choice may be the crux component of the aesthetics for your space assuming you can get the correct grain profile. Happy building!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Michelle Fries, BeDe Design, LLC added this to 10 Ways to Get the Modern Rustic Lodge Look
Anchored spaces. Because of the open layout of a lodge, rugged materials should be carried through all the spaces, with features and appliances kept to scale. The extra-large island and stone-surrounded eight-burner range anchor this space within a larger great room.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Cooking With Color: When to Use Red in the Kitchen
Consider your ceiling, otherwise known as the forgotten fifth wall, when decorating your kitchen. This neutral kitchen gets a wonderful punch of color via the hot red painted tile ceiling.
