Ash is a “sun tree”. It has a light, loose crown and its sapwood is light, whitish, and sometimes pink. The heartwood of old trees is beautifully dark. For carving, I prefer the parts where sapwood meets this dark heartwood. I enjoy the contrast. Ash wood is very tough, dense, hard and fibrous. It has distinctive annual rings and shiny wood in the cut. It is flexible, which is why it is used for the production of bows, skis, handles and sports equipment. It is flexible, and thus an ideal material for collars and bentwood furniture. Some ash trunks have wavy fibres − like the better-known undulating (streaky) maple, which is used for the production of musical instruments. My trays are made of ash wood, which grew in “Czech Canada” − near Nová Bystřice.
