Sawn Prime American Ash (per cubic foot)
Our Rough Sawn American Ash Timber is supplied by the cubic foot in full sized boards. The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 90mm and 150mm, depending on stock availability. The plank lengths tend to be about 3 metres, but again may vary due to stock availability.
If you require timber in specific widths or with a fully planed finish, we would recommend our planed all round ash timber.
Please Note: It is to be expected that the sawn boards will display watermarking due to the kiln drying process. This completely natural phenomenon occurs as the water dries out from the timber. This natural surface marking, along with any other marks, will be removed when you plane and/or sand the boards.
Guide to Cubic Foot Calculation:
An average 3m x 5" x 1" board equates to 0.35 cubic foot
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.
