This is a sideboard I built for our dinning room. The wood is Pecan, from a tree that fell 25 years ago in Rocky Mount, North Carolina during a hurricane.

very cool. I like the three little drawers, something different.

The fact that you made this from a pecan tree is neat too. Did you cut it up yourself or have it done?

Did you have to let it dry for awhile? never done this but I know of a huge walnut trunk laying on the ground that I’d love to cut up and save for a project like this. Lot of work, I imagine.

good job.

Reedwood: I bought the lumber a few years ago from the guy who had the tree cut up 25 years ago. He had the rough cut lumber sitting in a old barn at his Mom’s house.
