Quick Overview

Our Planed All Round American Ash is accurately machined using state of the art German technology, ensuring you receive timber that is perfectly smooth and straight, making it a pleasure to work with.

If you require set lengths of timber or non-standard sizes, please contact our Sales Office who will be happy to advise you, as there is often wastage to account for with specific cutting lists.



Our Prime Ash is sourced from North America and planed to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The sapwood is light-coloured to nearly white and heartwood varies from greyish to light brown, to pale yellow streaked with brown. The wood is generally straight-grained with a coarse uniform texture. The degree and availability of light-coloured sapwood and other properties will vary according to the growing regions.

The wood is elastic, tough and strong relative to its weight and has good stiffness and hardness. Shock resistance is very good. It works well with machine hand tools but has a moderate blunting effect. The harder species need preboring for nailing and screwing. It polishes, stains and glues well.

Slightly harder than oak although not as durable. 

Typical Uses
Used for quality furniture, interior joinery, boat building and built-in kitchens. Other uses include sports equipment such as oars, paddles, bats and cues, and handles for workshop and garden tools. It is also a good source of decorative veneers.

Lovely ash
I ordered about 50m planed ash. It came perfect sizes and really well finished. Very happy. Would highly recommend.

Great - very happy
I've shopped here twice now. I can't fault what I've been sent and don't have much to compare it against in terms of joinery experience. The ash and oak seems really well finished and top quality. I'll certainly be back if I need more. It's great to be able to specify what is needed and to have it arrive some 2-3 weeks later. Arrives perfectly packaged and with no damage. I fully recommend.

Excellent quality
I received a delivery of planed ash a few weeks ago and I am very impressed with the timber and the entire ordering/delivery process. The timber is of excellent quality and the planing and milling were extremely precise. I have been able to do glue-ups using all four edges with excellent results. I was also impressed with how the timber came packed as none of the boards were damaged and the packing allowed for controlled acclimation to my work space's temperature and humidity. Well done all around! I'm looking forward to finishing up my current projects so that I can order more.
