White as, or Fraxinus Americana which is its scientific name, is a very hard and resistant wood from North America. It's famous to be easy to work with and easy to steam bending. White ash is the number one choice for baseball bats and tool handles, which also guarantee its suitability for high quality wooden wrist watches. It has excellent shock resistance, and when stained it can look very similar to oak. Common uses are also flooring and millwork.
