Hickory is a lot of fun with dark and light tones. I wasn’t real pleased with the knobs the customer chose.

Thanks… Rob, I can’t remember exactly what I pay for Hickory but I remember it being close to Maple.. maybe $4.50 or there abouts.. Hickory is a “hard” wood but I didn’t notice it being harder on my tools than oak or similar woods..
