American Ash, as it is commonly know, is distributed from Canada and the USA.
Generally, it has a greyish-brown heartwood and a light creamy colour overall, with a fairly straight grain.
It is commonly used for sports equipment due to its moderate bending strength and shock absorbance. It is also commonly used for making veneered furniture and panels.
Ash is of a medium strength, and suitable for average domestic use and some light commercial projects.
