Ash woodturning blanks are a joy to turn, whether it’s a bowl, platter or creative design the Ash timber can be polished, buffed to a highly polished finish.
The colouring of the heartwood is a light to medium brown, the sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood. The grain has a medium to coarse texture like oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular, though sometimes moderately curly or figured boards can be found.
Apart from woodturning Ash is also used in the manufacturing of sporting and wooden handles. Ash will accept most wood stains and can be brought to a highly polished finish.
