That`s some really unusual grain Al, it looks terrific, very supprised to see it`s ash.
Great Job, well done.

Thanks baz, I came across this plank of ash about 3 years ago and used most of it when I made my parents a corner cabinet. The ash was used for the door panels and I only had a piece about 300mm long left from the end of the plank and didn't know what to do with it.

That is some wicked grain effect........I suppose when you only have a small bit left over, its hard to think how to use it up..........this is where the professionalism comes out......
Well done Al

Marc, originally the board was 8' long by 10" wide by an inch thick and the grain was like this through the board. I have never seen an ash plank like it before or since I came across this one.

That's what I love about wood, no 2 piece's are the same, and every now and again you come across a piece that is just so wonderfully different.

Hello Al,
                 I think this is what is known as marbled ash. I used a similar piece to make an Easter egg last week. If i photographed the piece I have left perhaps someone will confirm or contradict. The smell is what gives it away really. Very nice frame you have made from it.  Alan T.
