Does it feel relatively light, or heavy?

If it is light, I’m edging toward an imported wood that is used on inexpensive furniture these days. Thing bar stools, unupholstered, and some farm type kitchen tables with clear finish on the top and white paint on the chunky, turned legs.

FWIW, hickory and pecan, to the woodworker, are the same. Not so the botanist and other professionals.
