ASH LUMBER – ROUGH RWLASH 8/4"
ASH LUMBER – 8/4" – FAS1F
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
Ash is a ring-porous wood with prominent growth ring patterns. The sapwood is light in color and can vary from a creamy color to nearly white. Depending on the species, the heartwood can vary in color from pale yellow to light brown with greyish tones, sometimes tinged with red. A very straight-grained wood, Ash can appear similar to Red Oak, with a coarse, even texture.
Depending on the species, Ash can be a very hard, strong wood. Typically, Ash is stiff with high shock resistance and excellent bending qualities. It saws and machines well and can be worked suitably with both hand and machine tools, with a moderate blunting effect. Pre-boring is recommended for harder species. Ash provides great versatility for finishing options. It takes stain beautifully in a wide range of hues, and glues and polishes well.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.
To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:
- Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.
If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
