What are the advantages and disadvantages of ash sheet for furniture?

 Ash is a plant of the Oleaceae family, Ash is a large deciduous tree. made in China. Ash is an excellent wood species with a wide range of uses. The trunk is straight, the material is tough and dense, elastic, straight in texture, smooth in planed surface, good in gluing and paint performance, and has good decorative properties. It can be used for construction. , aircraft, shipbuilding, instruments, sports equipment, furniture, etc. are widely used.

The difference between the heartwood and sapwood of Ashwood is obvious. Sapwood yellowish-white, narrow; heartwood gray-brown. The texture is straight, the pattern is beautiful, the structure is thick and shiny. The annual rings are obvious, evenly wide and narrow. Ring Porous. Earlywood tube holes are medium to large, obvious to the naked eye. The latewood tube holes are very small and can be seen under a magnifying glass, the wood rays are thin, and can only be distinguished by the naked eye, and the color is light.

Ash wood properties: The wood is slightly heavy and hard, with a density of 0.686g/cm³. It is not easy to dry, and the drying shrinkage is large, which is prone to warping and cracking defects; it is relatively resistant to corrosion and water. The material is tough and has good bending resistance. Good paint and gluing properties.

 What are the advantages and disadvantages of ash sheet for furniture?

1. The advantages of ash sheet as furniture

1. The ash sheet has a smooth cut surface and good paint and adhesive properties. Suitable for dry climates with minimal aging and little change in performance.

2. Fraxinus mandshurica has good processing performance, can be fixed well with nails, screws and glue, and can be dyed and polished to obtain a good surface effect.

3. Fraxinus mandshurica has tough material, beautiful texture, excellent overall strength, good seismic resistance and steam bending strength, and is a good material for making furniture.

4. The durability of ash furniture. Heartwood is moderately resistant to preservative treatment, while white wood (sapwood) is penetrating. Ash furniture is very suitable for dry climates, with minimal aging and little change in heartwood.

 2. Disadvantages of Fraxinus mandshurica as furniture

1. Ashwood sapwood has no corrosion resistance of heartwood, white wood is easily eaten by mealy beetles and common furniture beetles, not easy to dry, and prone to warping. Therefore, it is recommended that ash wood furniture must be placed in a dry environment, and drying protection measures must be taken.

2. Fraxinus mandshurica solid wood furniture has a large deformation. It is made of solid wood and is mostly spliced with small pieces of wood. Large pieces of wood have large shrinkage and deformation, which is not suitable. Some ash furniture is basically the main frame of ash solid wood, and the large area is covered with ash wood veneer, which is also because of the large deformation and shrinkage of ash. Therefore, it is recommended to use the combination of ash and joinery to make ash solid wood furniture.
