About this product

Ash, Fraxinus quadrangulata, is distributed in the midwestern United States. The color can range from beige to dark brown. The texture is similar to oak, medium to coarse.

It rates poorly against rot and insect attack.

Warning: Blue Ash is listed as 'critically endangered' on the IUCN Red List, making it an unsustainable product to use.

Ash woods are very hard, even harder than oak, but they are less resistant to moisture. It takes on stains well and is known for its light color. Because there is no odor or taste, it is suitable for food and liquid containers.

Like most other woods, ash comes in a range of grades and is priced according to grade and quality. This wood is moderate on the price scale, not too expensive but not too cheep. Expect to pay more than oak. The exact price has so many variables, such as quantity, size, your location, etc., that the actual cost cannot be listed.
