Ash, American

The heartwood of American Ash is a light to medium brown color. The Sap can be very wide and tends to be beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood. American Ash has a medium to coarse texture like oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular, though sometimes moderately curly or figured boards can be found. Produces good results with hand or machine tools. Responds well to steam bending. Glues, stains, and finishes well. Can be used for flooring, millwork, boxes/crates, baseball bats, and other turned objects such as tool handles.
