Southern Asia, especially in Japan, Korea, Manchuria and Sachalin. However, the occurrences of this wood being of importance for the European market are those of Japan, especially on Honshu and Hokkaido.
The colour is a slightly darker than of the European Ash but when machined Japanese Ash is more comparable with European Oak . Colourful Tamo and Tamo burls are excellently suited for the production of very decorative veneers.
Tamo can be worked with all tools without difficulty. Edges and profiles can split should the tools not be perfectly sharp.
Due to the already low moisture content of the log Tamo can be dried well and quickly. As a general rule it is not prone to checking or warping.
All the usual surface finishes, such as stains and varnishes, can be used without difficulty.
Tamo glues well. Screw and nail joints should be pre-drilled but then hold well.
High quality interior construction lumber, highly decorative with Burls or fiddleback mottle; construction lumber (only in Japan).
