Hickory Wood Veneer Information
There are several Hickory species but Bitternut hickory is possibly the most widely and uniformly distributed hickory of them all. It grows pretty much all over most of the Eastern half of the United States. Hickory and Pecan are very heavy and hard on knives and blades. We typically do not wide belt sand Hickory any finer than 150 gritt because we find that the belts have a tendancy to get hot quickly and load up causing them to polish and burn rather than cut. We usually have panel length Hickory quarters and or flat cut and at times we will have some with knots and spalting. Hickory in veneer form can have buckle and I try to stay away from it when it does. It can be a pain in the butt to deal with.
