  I rarely use ash for edging
  Posted by: mornstein on Nov-04-12 9:35 AM (EST)
 

Ash is tough and steam bends well however hickory and white oak are tougher yet. They are my preferred woods for edging.

I also use a variety of synthetic/composite edgings, especially for paddles that may get especially harsh usage. Those edgings are either blends of epoxy and various strengthening fillers or one of several synthetic yarns, saturated with epoxy.
