(Fraxinius mandschurica) This wood has an unusual grain pattern that is unlike any other ash species. It is also known as Japanese ash, as it grows in Japan. Woodworkers call the wildly swirly grain of this expensive wood plateaud, and its figure peanut, because it has 3-dimensional bubble-like areas that actually do look rather like a peanut or double-nut goober shell. It also produces another figure pattern that woodworkers typically call "waterfall".
