On Friday 20th November 2020, iWood's telephone system is being upgraded and we expect some downtime on the phones at some point during the day. Please email us on email@example.com if you have any trouble getting through on the phones, but we hope for a speedy switchover.
Please note that iWood is a wholesale timber merchant, and because much of our timber is imported to order, we have a minimum order amount of £750 ex VAT (£900 inc VAT).

FAS American Ash Sawn to Size
American Ash is an exceptional timber which can be steam bent and is very useful for interior joinery. While suitable for interior use you shouldn’t leave this timber exposed to the elements. Ash is a light brownish-white colour however, dark brown streaks can occur through the heartwood.
Some of the main uses of American Ash include furniture making, cabinet making, worktops, turnery, impact tool handles, sports equipment, panelling and even solid-body electric guitars. American Ash isn’t very durable when used outdoors and is perishable, so it is important that you only use it for interior applications.
This is one of the best timbers to work with in terms of shaping and treating and buying it cut to size is ideal if you want to plane the boards down yourself and do all of the machining and shaping. The boards will be rough sawn on all sides and edges. We saw down to your measurements leaving the boards slightly over length for you to cut down.
The timber is easily workable (and can be crafted using hand or machine tools) and can be glued and stained well when working with it.
At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest percentage of usable American Ash timber possible from your order.
Where does American Ash Come From?
The tree grows across Canada from Ontario down to Nova Scotia and in America from New England through to the Middle Atlantic and Central States. The trees reach approximately 15m-18m tall and have a diameter of around 0.75m.
The preferred growing conditions for an American Ash tree are deep, moist soils which have good drainage. They also like having full access to the sun for long periods of the day.

Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
