Building Products: Wonder Wood

Accoya Alder, by Accsys Technologies
Acetylation makes wood harder, more stable, and more rot resistant than its untreated counterparts, without any toxic chemicals. Nice, but available only in bland pine. We were happy to discover acetylated alder, a hardwood that can be stained to look just like its tropical cousins but is sustainably harvested.
About $8 per board foot; accoya.com
