Ash Wood

Ash is a heavy, tough, elastic wood, with a coarse grain which shows up well in the finishing process. This makes ash a suitable wood for certain kinds of furniture, such as refrigerators or kitchen cabinets. The grain in lumber is produced by varying combinations of cells of different kinds. Spring wood and summer wood, sap wood and heart wood, slow growth and rapid growth, knots, and burls, all represent natural variations which are accentuated by the sawing and finishing processes which bring out the beautiful grains.
