Ash, European

The heartwood of European Ash is a light to medium brown color, though darker streaks can also be seen. European Ash has fairly good strength properties for its weight and is also shock resistant. Has a medium to coarse texture like oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular, though sometimes 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 eg flooring, millwork, boxes/crates, baseball bats, and other turned objects such as tool handles.
