It is usually book matched with the grain running along the 8’ dimension. (Cross Grain runs along the 4′ dimension). Ash is a dense hardwood that is tough, strong, and elastic with a moderately coarse texture and porous grain. Ash wood veneer accepts stains and finishes well but care should be taken to remove all sanding dust from the grain pores.
