Interior Solid Wood Door Species

Red Oak

Oak is generally grown in the Northern Central/Eastern states, but also down to Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansas. It's sapwood is a light gray to reddish brown in color, with it's heartwood pink to reddish brown. The grain is somewhat straight, but the grain pattern tends to produce 'arrows'. With an open grain it has a semi-smooth feel after it has been stained and finished. During changes in humidity cycles, it is stable with only moderate movement. Oak stains easily, and evenly, with the stain leaving the grain more pronounced. ter" valign="middle">

Maple is commonly found in New England, the Appalachians, and up into Canada. The sapwood and heartwood are both white, with the heartwood slightly more tan in color. It is not uncommon to find a light to medium brown streak in maple. The grain is generally straight, but can be curly, or wavy. Being a closed grain wood, it sands very smooth, and unlike other woods like oak, it stays very smooth after staining and finishing. A sanding sealer is recommended with Maple because stain tends to take unevenly. so quite heavy.

Cherry is grown throughout Midwestern and Eastern U.S., mainly Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and New York. It's sapwood is generally reddish brown to pink in color, with it's heartwood varies from a light to medium reddish brown, and even lighter. The variations can be quite significant. It is also sensitive to UV light, changing color to a dark reddish brown, which would even out much of the color variations. The grain is fine and wavy, and some mineral streaks are common. Texture is quite smooth, and stains well. During changes in humidity cycles, it is somewhat stable and doors can warp if not sealed or stored properly. Cherry is a heavy, and strong wood, but has a look that is more subtle and formal.

Mahogany is grown in the more tropical climates of Central and South America. It's sapwood is a yellowish white, with it's heartwood varies from a light red to medium reddish brown. The grain is straight and uniform. It stains well, and is easy to finish. Mahogany...

Solid core interior doors are not made of MDF

They are usually made with low grade particle board cores, with or without a lumber cored area where the lockset goes...sometimes they are made with laminated strips of lumber (lumber or engineered core), and sometimes if they are a high rated fire door they have a mineral core (which is gypsum).
Except for the mineral core, all can be easily cut to a smaller size and edge banded with an appropriate iron-on veneer or glued wood strips to finish the edges, and will make an excellent table or desk.

    Which brand is the best? Which brand should I stay away from??

    • GE has a nice looking new line that functions very well, but get the GE Profile if you can afford it. You may have an authorized GE Scratch & Dent dealer in your area! Call around, because these are where the deals a …(consumer reports, consumer affairs) on this brand's models before you commit to one. Unless you know how to tell who made a kenmore, you may get something made by LG or Frigidaire or who really knows! I hope this helps!
