Very nice. The turned legs look perfect. I have always liked the natural color variations of hickory and am glad to see just a natural finish.

Beautiful job! I really like hickory and the aroma when working with it. Your turnings look great, as does the top.

Very nice! Hickory doesn’t get enough attention, IMO.

Hi Jack;

That’s a great looking table! I’m with Charlie about the hickory.

Very impressive work, and design.

Very nice table. This is one for an heirloom given the timber’s weight, hardness and general strength. Also excellent grain effect; I like how you have worked round the various knots. How were the legs to turn given the timber’s characteristics? I have a load of hickory off-cuts in the workshop, which I’m planning to use for toy making. Thanks for letting us look at this piece.

Yes as hard and stringy Hickory is I am surprised to see table legs turned with it, so how hard was it, did you figure out any tricks? thanks for sharing.

Beautiful hickory. I assume you turned the legs yourself, great job all around. Very nice table.

Yes I turned the legs myself. This is the first time I have ever worked with Hickory. I love the looks and the characteristics of the wood. BUT I PROBABLY WILL NEVER WORK WITH IT AGAIN. HOLLY !$#%
This is some hard wood.. To answer your questions. NO I did not find any tricks on how to turn the legs. Execpt ALOT of man hours,and ALOT of scrap pieces laying on my shop floor. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR LOOKING…

Have your say...
