Ash wood


Description: Ash heartwood is a grayish-brown, sometimes with a red tinge. It is generally straight grained and coarse, but with a smooth texture.

Mechanical Properties: Bending properties vary, but are generally very good. It has good strength, toughness, stiffness and hardness for its relatively light weight.

Working Properties: Moderate blunting effect on cutters, but can be worked fairly well with hand or power tools. Pre-drilling required for nailing in the harder Ashes. Stains, glues and polishes well.

Seasoning: Dries rapidly with little degradation. Moderate movement.

Uses: White Ash is used extensively in sporting goods, bats, oars, pool cues, tool handles, cabinet work, high-class joinery, plywood, paneling and veneer.
