Thanks, everybody. I have been showing it to a few friends, joking that it smells as sweet as sugar! “Here, give it a whiff!” Haha, they have all been tricked.

This is the first piece of hickory I think I’ve ever seen, and I’m happy to have found a quintessential American hardwood. Roy Underhill always used to (still does) sing its praises on his show. I almost think it’s a shame to turn it into a bowl instead of a tool handle or mallet, but big logs are tough to come by during upsate NY winters…

Thanks again, everyone!
