Home Kitchen Kitchen Cabinet Kings Glossary What is Ash Wood?What is Ash Wood? Ash wood can be used in cabinetry but it is most often known for its use in baseball bats. Ash wood is grown throughout North American. The Ash wood grown in the northern part of this region is known for producing the firmest lumber for this species of wood. In the South, Ash is typically softer because of higher sap content. Overall, Ash is known for being moderately hard, heavy and strong. Ash wood from the northern regions of North America tends to have a browner coloring due to its higher content ratio of heartwood in the lumber. Frequently, Ash is used as a substitute for Red Oak. Working with Ash wood is not necessarily difficult but there are some specific characteristics that should be addressed. For example, since Ash is a hardwood, it is important not to sand it with too fine a grit of sandpaper before staining. The surface of the wood can be resistant to even absorption if the texture is leveled. Therefore, builders will not exceed 220-grit when sanding the surface of a cabinet before the addition of a darker stain. This will allow enough texture on the surface of the wood to encourage even absorption. If a lighter stain is to be used, then 320-grit should be used for the final sanding. Failure to adhere to these simple recommendation can cause the finished of Ash wood cabinets to appear blotchy. Back to Glossary Related Definitions: What is Poplar Wood? What is Red Oak Wood?

Oak is the most common wood used for solid wood cabinets. Because of the strong “flower” grain in the wood, oak looks best in country settings. You can stain it almost any color, and since the graining is so strong, the grain will always come through the stain. To offset the reddish coloring, use either white oak, which is lighter in its natural coloring, or, if you prefer red oak, go “browner” in the stain selection. A cherry stain enriches the color of red oak. Cherry, used primarily in formal cabinets with raised panels, either French or English style, is an ele­gant wood with a natural reddish coloring that is much deeper than oak. Rift oak is a veneer much sought after by architects and designers. The oak flower is cut away, leaving the vertical grain. White oak is used for rift selection, so that it becomes very light when stained. This type of oak would generally be used in flush overlay con­struction, in which no frames would be visible. Hickory, another wood used in country settings, is a strong brown wood with natural markings. Birch has a very white, natural coloring. It takes a stain well and is often used in contemporary cabinets as well as in raised and recessed panel doors. Ash is the whitest wood and often employed in cab­inet interiors. It has very little graining or flower and takes a stain well in addition to easily accepting enamel or lacquer paint. Pine, which has a yellowish cast, takes distressing and antiquing beautifully, one reason it is so often used in English, French, and American country set­tings. Its drawback is that it is a soft wood and can be nicked easily. Maple is a hard wood that some manufacturers use primarily as a base for enamel or stains. It has little graining and tends to appear yellow. More exotic woods, such as wormy chestnut, which is highly distressed, and cypress, which has a yellow cast, are primarily available regionally and are not offered by most kitchen cabinet manufacturers. Those who know best about how to work with these woods are specialty wood workers. To find a cabinet shop in your area, visit NKBA.org/ProSearch. In ordering wood kitchen cabinets, try to see a sample of currently produced work to check the colors. Samples can oxidize over time so you’ll want to see how the fresh stains appear. Solid Wood Inside and Out? Note that many stores will promote their kitchen cabinets as made of “wood,” yet a single cabinet box can be made up of a wide range of products and veneers. Even in higher-quality kitchen cabinets, solid wood may be used only for doors and frames. A kitchen cabinet made entirely of solid wood may not even be your best bet, particularly if you live in a high-humidity area. Wood reacts to humidity, or the lack of it, and to temperature changes in the environ­ment. As a result, you can expect some shrinking or warping over time. On the other hand, a solid wood kitchen cabinet looks, feels, and smells like “quality” and exudes a sense of warmth that can’t be matched by composite and synthetic materials. The best-quality cabinets match the wood grains of their faces and boxes.
