Ash mainly. Sometimes oak, but split green ash is much easier to use
for bending (cheap too!). I also steam beech to colour it, but most
beech I get is already kiln dried and I'd much rather use green timber
As to why I'm doing it, then it's mainly furniture making - chair
backs (although I don't like Windsors, I have made them), eye rings
for yurts, even the odd crossbow.
