For decades craftsmen have considered using North American white ash as a substitute for Appalachian red oak.  But why?  In general ash (Fraxinus Americana) and red oak (Quercus rubra) are excellent hardwoods to use for many products. Moulding manufacturers, cabinet makers, and even door and window manufacturers could use either to produce their products.

We all know hardwood lumber is typically sold in random widths and lengths.  However, If you are not still buying your hardwoods in random widths and lengths, chances are you purchasing it either width sorted or in exact ripped-to-width bundles.  But why would a manufacturer prefer sorted hardwood strips or hardwood rips?
