European Ash Plywood

European Ash Plywood: European ash veneer

Ash plywood is a high-quality, that is used in various industrial & engineering applications, and the manufacture of decorative furniture & shopfitting and furniture manufacture.

It is commonly used where the performance of an ash-based material is particularly desirable, for example in sports equipment where its technical characteristics are essential; for decorative use, such as furniture where the appearance is of most importance; or in engineering applications that make use of the excellent dimensional stability of ash in varying ambient moisture levels.

Ths wood is also available as ash fineline plywood


Winwood Products is a European ash plywood supplier offering the following configurations/options:

European ash throughout plywood:

Ash Plywood: Ash throughout plywood

Used for applications where a very strong & resilient, decorative plywood is required, ash throughout plywood is a high-quality panel product that is regularly used for toy & model making, interior decoration & in the manufacture of a variety of sports equipment.

This product is generally produced using uniform 2.5mm thickness rotary peeled ash veneers throughout.

European ash faced plywood:

This is a general description of 'ash combi plywood', where every alternate veneer is a different specie to ash, and 'ash twin plywood', where the faces are ash bonded to a core of other woods with no ash within it.

Generally, ash faced plywoods are manufactured using cores based on beech plywood, poplar plywood, silver fir plywood, but it can also be mixed with a core of oak plywood, etc. Some of these species offer the ability to achieve a panel that is lighter in weight, without affecting the technical characteristics that ash throughout plywood offers, or to alter the panel to achieve a particular aspect that you may find applies to your particular need.

Unidirectional European ash plywood (European ash drawerside plywood):

Ash Plywood: Unidirectional ash drawerside plywood

Ash plywood can be manufactured specifically to your requirements, for instance if you require a plywood with unidirectional veneers - the grain of each veneer laid in the same direction - or you need to achieve a decorative edge with contrasting colors from a different wood, this can be supplied.

Unidirectional plywood made from 100% ash is regularly used in the manufacture of drawers, in order to avoid any end-grain being visible, and this arrangement is normally described as ash drawerside plywood.

Generally, the core veneer immediate beneath the face is bonded at right angles to all others, as this has been found to offer increased stability across the face. This arrangment therefore reduces the incidence of splitting on the face veneer due to the increased flexibility of the panel across the grain, although we can lay all the veneers in the same direction if required.
