Ash is a hardwood timber found mainly in Eastern North America, Canada, and New England, among other places. The average height of an Ash tree is about 20-30 m with a .6-1.5 m trunk diameter. The average dried weight is 675 kg/m3 and the wood has a Janka rating of 1,320 lbf (5,870 N). It is both heavy and hard, but not durable. Ash is considered a perishable wood, that is it can decay or rot easily. It is almost non-resistant to insect attacks and cannot be used in exterior conditions with direct exposure to sun, moisture or earth. The wood is easy to work on and fairs well both with hand and machine tools. There is no blunting effect on tools and it is easy to glue, stain, bend, and finish.
The heartwood of dried Ash is brownish-white coloured and can sometimes have dark brown streaks. The sapwood is light brown or beige and can be easily confused with heartwood. The grain is generally straight and regular and the texture is medium to coarse just like oak. In terms of price and availability, ash is one of the least expensive commercial hardwoods. It is easily available and can be inexpensive to moderately priced depending on where you’re buying it from. (Contact White Knight Consulting for the best price for wholesale Ash wood).
Ash wood comes in many species, all of which are used in commercial ash or as timber. Different grades of ash are used for different purposes, depending on their strength, density and other general properties. Tough species of ash, for instance, are used for purposes where toughness and elasticity are required, boat frames, skis, shop fitting, tool handles, etc. for example. Soft grades, on the other hand, are suitable for interior work such as joinery, furniture and cabinetry. Other uses of ash include flooring, millwork, baseball bats, boxes, and turned objects.
