You would get a log of hickory 48-50 inches long, then split it down until you have a blank roughly the size you want. Splitting, as opposed to cutting, keeps the grain intact along the length of the blank and makes it much stronger.

To be clear, you would split with a froe or an axe, not a saw. A wedge tool, not a cutting tool.
