Thanks to that little green bug I have a bunch of strange looking wood. The ash borer had nothing to do with the color change, I just got to find the natural coloring as I cut down the tree. Most of the character came from other internal worming and rot in the tree. The older trees which were mostly white ash had the best coloring. The green ash grew too fast to get the grain and purple ash seems to have somewhat of a resistance to the bug.

Man, that is some great grain!

The bookmatch is almost a mirror image. And the price is right!
