Ash, the tree of sensitivity and higher awareness, is in many respects quite similar to oak.
The popular hardwood has similar warm beige to light brown colour and texture, it is course with straight grain. It is harder than oak, however it is lighter, more flexible and shock resistant, therefore often a preferred choice in furniture making.
Due to its beautiful looks and versatility it has become quite a popular choice for modern furniture. Ash is also typically slightly cheaper that oak.
