Sometimes known as White Ash, this wood derives from the Fraxinus Americana species group and is native to eastern North America. It is a hugely popular and versatile wood and Ash is one of the most used trees for everyday wood manufacture.
Ash wood is strong and straight grained making it ideal for a large number of uses. It works well and responds to a variety of woodworking techniques. It is commonly used for flooring, sports equipment and tool handles and other joinery products.
Ash is a great all purpose wood and we recommend it for its strength, reliability and the ease with which it responds to wood working processes. It has a lovely straight and regular grain and is a delightful pale creamy colour which is so easy to work with when planning a kitchen design scheme.
