Type of wood used in frame

Recommended Posts

Good Day

I am replacing windows in my 29 Plymouth `U' and found the drivers door panel that the window roller and door pulls attach to are badly cracked.

I am guessing only that this is a piece of hardwood but not sure of type.

I am not so worried about matching for authenticity, this is just a Sunday ice cream driver,  but whatever was used lasted close to 90 years so I would like to use the same.

 

Thanks in advance..

Yes, agree, you bet your ash was the best choice.  Easy to work when fresh, when moisture settles out dries hard as a rock, fine grained so holds fasteners well.

 

Get it while you can, the ash borer is killing trees daily....

I may be overly sensitized to political correctness, but the jocular wordplay of ash and ash boring can be construed as being knotty.

Yes, it could be considered knotty, yew did well.....I pine for the simpler days when we weren't as politically correct, and we didn't have to spruce up what we say...but I guess I'm aspen for the impossible....

Just make sure you have the cashew need to buy ash, it's getting expensive, and you may need to grease palms to get the best cuts.  Even though fabric and cottonwood cover the interior,, the wood needs to plum perfect to have a nice car.

 

Orange you glad you asked?
