White Ash (or American White Ash) is a strong, straight-grained hardwood with a light appearance and coarse uniform texture. It is slightly harder than oak although not as durable, and can look very similar when stained (although oaks have much wider rays).
The timber is quite dense and mainly used for interior applications where the light brown and creamy white colourations look especially good with a simple clear finish.
It is among the least expensive utility hardwoods available.
