Default Alder

Colleagues: does anyone have any experience working with alder?

I hear it referred to as the "poor man's cherry." A local lumber yard advertises a good selection of dimensional stock. But I have not examined it and compared it to cherry, or other hardwoods.

Heard that it too soft for cabinets, but just how soft is "too soft?"

Seriously thinking about building a new tool cabinet and I would like to abstain from utilizing plywood if at all possible.

Thanks for any help.
