    hickory table top changed color

    DARN

    I hear you and that’s true. But I would definitely call and find out for sure.

    Thanks Joe! I love the final product, but agree... I don't plan to use hickory again if I can avoid it. Maybe use some of the scrap to make a mallet or handle.

    Good thing to look out for, thanks for the tip. In this case, the lumber came from a nice heated pole barn with concrete floors. Nice a clean (no gravel), at least by lumber shop standards :-)
