White Ash (USA/Canada)

White ash (Fraxinus Americana) grows from the East to the Midwest. Green ash and blue ash-with somewhat weaker wood-share the same range, and commercially, they’re harvested and marketed together. White ash differs in color from black ash (often called brown ash), its cousin in the market. White ash looks lighter-although it’s actually tan, not white. Although somewhat coarse-textured, white ash generally has straight and even grain.

You can use white ash for any woodworking project that you would red oak: chairs, tables, desks, and cabinets. Carvers and woodturners view white ash the same as red oak. Its hardness and coarse grain make it difficult to work.
