Let's say I can't find any decent white oak for steaming without driving to the ends of the earth. I've got a local mill that is now sawing up some ash. I've heard it's good for steam bending, but is it the kind of wood I'd want for coamings and trim? I've never worked with it nor know it's properties. What is your sage advice? I imagine if it was really good for this, I'd be seeing a lot of it used instead of oak.
