- two wood species: a contrasting light and dark. In this case it is alder (light, solid) and meranti (dark, plywood). Except for the light/dark test, the species are irrelevant. I just used what I had on hand.
- The top and bottom trim is alder. The top piece has horizontal grooves. The idea behind this 'grille' is to provide ventilation for the contents inside. We stole this idea from examples seen in some other boats (Hallberg-Rassy and Oyster).
- the reveal of the door is edge-banded with alder to cover the plywood edges
- decorative horizontal grooved inlay matches the reveal top and bottom to accentuate the horizontal line styling
- the finish is Interlux Goldspar satin interior finish
