Roasted Ash Hardwood Sample (1/2"x3"x6")

Get your hands on a wood you've never tried before! It's simple. Samples are milled on all sides to the standard size of 1/2'' X 3'' X 6'', as determined by The International Wood Collectors Society, and include the shipping cost within the 48 U.S. Each one is labeled with the botanical and common names. Use these to test finishes and stains, to compare color and grain characteristics, etc.

Enjoy it's beauty and resilience - it has a stunning warm, caramel hue that enhances the grain and just draws you in. Finish your project with a simple clear oil to transform the color to a deep charcoal black. 

What's Roasted Lumber?
It's a chemical-free process that cooks the wood under pressure. And the results are incredible! Your boards transform with 100% dark color all the way through, and a newfound resistance to water and weather that it did't have before. Bottom line for woodworkers? An elevated appeal for outdoor furniture and cutting boards.
