Ash is a great option for your next live edge wood project. This tree is native to Eastern North America and is easy for us to locally source in Columbus, Ohio. Wood slabs made from ash make beautiful pieces of furniture, no matter what you are looking to create.
Ash wood slabs are medium to light brown in color and have a semi-coarse texture, similar to oak. The grain on this hardwood species is straight and gives off a classic, natural look. The durability of ash makes this wood easy to work with, either by hand or machinery.
Some of the ideal uses for live edge ash wood slabs are:
Urbn Timber works with Columbus arborists to locally source our ash logs, all of which have dropped due to sustainable causes. The logs are brought to our lumber yard, where they are sawn into natural live edge wood slabs. Then, the ash wood slabs are air-dried for at least six months, and kiln-dried for another two months. We get each slab down to a single-digit moisture content before they are fresh-cut to your specific design, and finally ready to be handcrafted into a masterpiece.
