We all love this game. I’ll be brief. Reddish. Was dunnage from a job. Iron stacked on it. (Irrelevant, but backstory nevertheless). Smells tropical. (Whatever that means). It is hard. Doesn’t seem very grainy, but hand planing always manages to find a small bit to tear out when planing from any direction. (Interlocking grain?)

Definitive. I always thought hickory to be a more yellowish wood, based on having had hickory handled hammers. I’m sure there is variance in that. I’ve seen pecan (aka hickory) that had quite a bit of color variance in a single tree.

I have sawn, dried and planed a bunch pf pecan. And, pecan is a hickory. Beautiful brown heartwood.

Thanks, WDHLT 15! This seems to fit that description. It’s like one side of a given grain planes smooth while the very next row tears out in the same stroke. It isn’t everywhere, but it happens in spots. I don’t have a bunch, under 10 BF with no stock greater than 3” width, but a small project’s worth or well suited to accent another species in a larger project.
