American 'white' Ash is mainly used for interior furniture and joinery, particularly where bending-strength is required. The colour of Ash boards will vary from a white appearance through to brown.
American Ash is imported in FAS grade in imperial thicknesses of sawn 1", 1 ¼", 1 ½", 2", 2 ½", 3" & 4". Kiln dried imported packs normally contain random widths from 4" to about 9" and are in predominantly even lengths i.e. 8', 10', 12' as this is the standard method of American hardwood production. Occasionally we are able to obtain other lengths up to 14' long and also premium widths.
Please note: American grading rules allow width tolerances in the sawn sizes, e.g. 7" width stock may vary from 6 5/8" to 7 ½" yet still be charged as 7". Therefore, we encourage customers to advise us of the minimum 'planed finish' width they want so that our tally staff can select accordingly.
We also stock Ash 'tapered Pellets' for covering screwheads when countersunk.
