Understanding American White Ash

Choosing a timber that has the right look for your project is one of the first things that you should consider. American white Ash has a distinctive colour that stands out from other timbers. The heartwood of American white Ash is a light to medium brown colour while the sapwood is more beige. One of the great benefits of American white Ash is the fact that there is no sharp contrast between the hardwood and the sapwood, making it easier and more versatile to work with.

The grain has a medium-coarse texture to it, in many ways it’s similar in texture to Oak though the colours differ. The green is almost exclusively straight and regular, though if you’re looking for something with a slight curve then American white Ash is probably most suited for your project. This makes it an ideal choice for furniture as the natural grain is visually stunning to look at and the medium coarse texture, is quite easy to work with.

If you’re looking for timber that is easy to work with, then American white Ash is ideal. It produces good results when worked either by hand or using machines and it responds excellently to steam bending, glues, stains and finishes. This makes it one of the more versatile timbers, ideal for furniture and a variety of hand tools. American white Ash is a durable, shock resistant timber, which is one of the reason’s it’s so popular.
