What would you all do if someone gave you a touch over 200 feet of hickory?
What can/would you make out of it? I've never used it before. But, I know
what I'll do with the 400 and some feet of walnut they're giving me though!
Entertainment center from hell! BTW, this is all dried, been in a barn
covered up for well over 5 years, and none thinner than 5/4. Gloat maybe???

"Gloat maybe???" ya think? You suck.
Anyhow, hickory is not a good wood to work. It is very hard and brittle.
Cutting and routing are both an ordeal. Use it for something that doesn't
require a lot of work. It is a reasonably pretty wood though, and very
My wife is looking for some very plain cabinets with shelves for the
basement. Hickory would be a good choice for that.
I made the first one out of walnut I got at auction for $1/bf. It was
pretty crappy with many defects, but I manage to hide most of them.
You mean after I was done kissing their feet and blessing their ancestors? *g*
I'd sell the hickory and play with the walnut...
BTW: you suck big-time..
If you had asked me that 7 or 8 years ago, after the first house I
trimmed with hickory, I would have told you to put it in a big pile
and light it!<g>
We've done a few more homes with hickory since then and it just takes
some patience to work it. It's almost as hard as cherry but has a
much more wild grain which makes joining and planing a challenge. It's
hard on knives, blades and cutters too but you just can't get in a
hurry with it. You can use it just as you would any hardwood.
It makes a great looking hardwood floor when finished natural.
