Little hickory project we just completed

Little busy for my taste, but it's what the client wanted & he loved it.

6' vanity, big wall cabinet, corner wall cabinet & vanity mirror. Also made the crown mold (not pictured) for the wall cabinets.

He really liked that all the hickory was sawn off our own farm.

Check cleared.:thumbsup:

That is pretty cool that all of it is from your farm. Makes for a good story.

I like hickory but agree that those are too busy.

Great work though!:thumbsup:

I've done a lot of work with hickory and like the wood.I probably would have used a stain on those pieces to even out the sapwood and heartwood some.
That woulda been my choice as well, but I wasn't writing the check.:laughing:

I really don't like working with hickory.

Good finished product, but I'm with y'all on it being busy.

Do you mill the wood yourself?

Looks great if it's going into a cabin.

The history of the wood will be one the client tells every person who enters his home.

Good business decision on the doing the work.:thumbsup:

We had a pond built that summer & sawed about 75 trees from the pond site. Ended up with over 5000 bd ft of red & white oak & about 500' of hickory. Had a local amish bring his bandsaw mill to the farm & do the sawing. I think it was around 20 cents/bd ft. I then hauled it all to a friend of mine with a kiln. He dried it all down & I hauled it home rough sawn. We've got a 20" planer to process it down from there.

Nice haul on the Oak and Hickory..not a big fan of both but nicely done.
