I don’t know about Evansville area, but northen Indiana is a prime hickory area. And getting it from a tree service that actually mills the logs they cut, or someone who buys and cuts them shouldn’t cost you anymore than $2 bf. Hickory’s pretty hard stuff and most woodworkers/consumers just don’t use it much, so it sells pretty cheap. I also thinks it’s a species that benefits from air drying regards the color. Most hickory cabinets are made of lumber selected out to only hace the uniformly tan color. “Real” hickory lumber will have dramatic dark brown swirls in it. Some don’t like that, but I do.
