Solid Wood Cabinets Made in the USA by Whittier Wood Products

The McKenzie Step Back Bookcase Collection Finished are made from eco friendly American Alder and Birch wood. The bookcases have a traditional soft arch design and a beveled top. These are 100% built and finished in the USA.  We call this the Dream Wall program.  One base cabinet with or without the hutch top or we can combine several for an entire wall.

These solid wood cabinets are perfect for an office, a study or living room and have the look of built in bookcases. Regardless of your space, we have a cabinet size and finish for you. 

Whittier Wood uses high level craftsmanship. These wooden base cabinets with optional hutches feature many stain and paint combinations.  The finished products feature a conversion varnish, the most chemically resistant finish available.  Additionally, there is a 2 tone option for the hutch with the painted base and the interior, including the shelves Natural Alder stain. See the images in the post of the 2 tone finish process.

Shipping charges calculate in the cart based on zip code.  Our bases and hutches ship fully assembled and the hutches include mounting hardware.  Custom trim on multiple cabinets and corner connectors are a great option with this Dream Wall program.  In addition, our team may find you savings with shipping charges and it’s worth a call. The cabinets generally ship in about 6 to 8 weeks. We are open 7 days a week and hope to earn your business.  Combining multiple bookcases or products will also save on shipping.  Contact our customer care team about your options.  512-451-0213 or email

Sustainable, Abundant American Red Alder

Whittier Wood is very conscious about it’s use of wood and the environment. That’s why Whittier uses American red alder wood for it’s furniture. Alder regenerates naturally and grows quickly and prolifically.

Our Alder products are made from Alder certified to the international standard Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™). For more information on the PEFC program, please visit www.pefc.org.

Alder is a beautiful hardwood that is similar to cherry wood. It grows in the Pacific Northwest along a 125 mile-wide strip along the West Coast that stretches from Alaska to Northern California. The largest concentration of Alder stands just north of Portland, Oregon.

Red alder is almost white when freshly cut,but quickly changes on exposure to air to light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. Alder machines well and is excellent for turning and polishing.
