What wood is this?

Went to get some ash to start a project and this was one of the boards. I didnt notice it till I ran it thru the planer. I dont have a lot of experience, but the only thing ive seen with this look has been maple.

It's all ash. It's just that one board is gnarly. If it doesn't fit your needs you might exchange it. There are a lot of people that would like it.

I like it, I just wish there was more. It kind of stuck out from the others when using it in a panel. I've had several pieces of maple look like this, but it's the first piece of ash.

Ron,
This is called figure....it can be in many forms/styles and most likely it is part of some crotch area. That's a very pretty piece. With ash and most open grain lumber figure is usually not as pronounced, especially the marbly curly type of figure you have there. If possible , I'd see if I could find the other 2-3 boards.
GREAT find!!! IF you finish right , the curls will POP in brilliancy, most of us call it chautouncy (spelling???)....a deep look.
