Indiana grows the best wood. Very pretty table.

thanks for the great feedback.

@whitebeast88 , to answer your it is not hard to work with just takes more patience and your blades and bits must be sharp. I had to swap out my table saw blade to cut the hickory to a fresher more sharpened one. So aside from that 20 minute delay it is about the same. Actually the finished project turns out with much sharper lines and it will be much more durable than softer woods.

Very nice layout of the grain and dark spots for that table. My favorite part of woodworking is matching and laying out grain in a way that makes the whole thing congruent.

Very nice table. I love the top. How was the hickory to work with? I’ve heard that it is pretty hard wood.

Great job on table. Great job letting the wood show its beauty.

Beautiful work. I’m also in IN and we have a fair amount of hickory around my friend’s woods. You just gave me an idea :)

Indiana is known for having some of the best domestic hardwoods.
