Red Oak Lumber

Red Oak Lumber

Lumber InfoBack to Lumber

  • Color: Ash has two very different colors. The sapwood is white to creamy off white in color, while the hardwood is brown to grayish in color.
  • Uses: Cabinet, furniture, and building boats. Possesses a grain pattern that is almost identical to both Red and White Oak. Also has a very unique "turkey track" marking that is sometimes found randomly within the lumber (found only in the Ash species).
  • Workability: Strong wood with adequate bending properties. Mills fairly well with some "chip out" occurring around knots, swirls, or twists in the grain. Glues and finishes very well. Also a great wood for lathe turning.
  • Plywood: ¼" and ¾" B-2 White Ash VC ply is kept in stock.
  • Additional Info: Not many wide boards are available. A slightly higher waste factor can be expected due to heartwood.
