S4S White Ash Lumber - Thick

White Ash is a great choice when looking for a strong and affordable wood!

This wood is a popular choice for making tool handles and baseball bats. Other popular uses would be flooring, millwork, and furniture.

The heartwood is light to medium brown with a sapwood that is typically beige or light brown. It’s not always clear where the sapwood ends, and the heartwood begins. The grain is quite coarse and strikes a strong resemblance to oak. Typically it is fairly straight-grained but you will occasionally find a curly or figured board!

What is happening to White Ash trees? The emerald ash borer has decimated hundreds of millions of ash trees. Because of this, ash is starting to disappear from lumber yards and forests alike.

If you would like to do the milling yourself - try our 8/4 Rough Cut White Ash Lumber for a more budget friendly version.

What can you expect?

We will carefully handpick a high quality board for you. We pay close attention to the wood species characteristics so we can send you a board that well represents each wood type.

S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term "surfaced" or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough cut lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough cut lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x (5-6”) x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.

Great product. Great service!

Mike Cloutier (Ottawa, CA)

I have placed many orders, the product is usually excellent. Not so much this time, I pointed out some issues during pick up, the less than perfect product was blamed on a new plainer. It has required a lot of sanding which equals a lot of extra work. If this were my first order I would probably not return. Fortunately as stated the product is usually very good.
