Our Rough Sawn Prime Ash Timber is sourced from the very best sawmills in North America. The timber is a prime grade and contains minimal knots. The boards are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory giving an average moisture content of between 9-11%.
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.
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.
