I think it looks more like maple
Ash has a grainy, oak look.

Definitely not ash (see pics on my site). I agree w/ tcleve4911 that it looks like maple, but I can't see the grain well enough to be positive.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Ditto...
Cleve's lower pic is very representative of the grain in some white ash I've been working with lately...

Good, hard wood.
The Wifey likes it.
Says she's really fond of my hard, white ash...

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Looks like it could be box elder. There's no pink streaks, but it doesn't always have those.

That looks like curly maple to me based on the split piece of wood.

It is Box Elder. I work with alot of it all the time. That is some that does not really have much(if any) red in it. Most Box Elder will have green moss growing on the bark like that. All that I have has got it on there. But, there is no doubt in my mind. It is Box Elder.

It's beautiful when it has the red streaks in it.

Just a few more. I love working with this wood. People go crazy over this stuff from bowls to pens.
