FWIW they used to call ash the poor mans oak .The stuff is relatively hard ,takes stain very well .Quarter sawn you have a hard time telling it from oak .

It's very low in moisture content and is one of the few hardwoods you can air dry and use for lumber .Although I don't recommend it you can burn it for firewood from a green cut tree .Although on that it's doubtfull you can find one alive in most of the central great lakes states .EAB wiped them out ,nearly every one ,gone.


I've used a bit for interior trim,mantels,window sills etc .I probabley have close to 7,000 Bd feet laying in logs and at least that much still standing .About 2000 at my shop which is bone dry .

Next is finishing my bandsaw rig which seems to be  taking forever .Too many irons in the fire .
