Default Is this ash?

I knocked an old cabinet apart, it was beyond refinishing.
The picture is of a box I made from one of the drawer fronts.

I'm thinking it's ash, I could be wrong?

Thanks,
Curt

Curt,
That looks like it could be ash, though it's a very cross grained piece.

I'm not really sure to be honest. I really like the grain pattern on that piece, also the finished version of your box is very nice.

I don't know ether, I just cut down a big ash tree the wood is a very light tan color and the grain looks nothing like yours.. letting it dry then can compare better

Sometimes I've seen Elm that looks like a similar grain to ash only browner.
This is a picture of Elm that I just found on the net that shows what I mean.


I've seen Ash thats been stained that I thought was Elm before.
