Some type of Hickory?
« on: May 05, 2022, 08:28:10 PM »
Cut this log today, very hard wood cut like Pecan. If I went to fast the cut would be wavy and the sawdust was fine even with new blade. All I have to go by was the log no leaves or limbs were on it.

Round here that is referred to as "pig" hickory. Ive no idea why.

I do know that its every bit as hard as shag bark hickory and on a cloudy day you can see sparks coming off your saw chain when you start your cut.   When I had my band mill I really didnt like sawing the stuff.   I'd be changing bands all day.
Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

Maybe pignut hickory (Carya glabra) 
south central Wisconsin
 It may be that my sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others

Thanks for the replies, it was a pain to cut I guess it's in the smiley_devil wood family tree.

Actually on the Janka Hardness Scale, pignut hickory is a good bit harder than shagbark hickory.

Janka Hardness of North American Hardwoods in Drying and Processing

Shagbark hickory has a Janka Hardness of 1880 while pignut has a Janka Hardness of 2140.

It was the hardest log I've cut so far. It was worse than Pecan.

Looks like white heart hickory. The bark is harder than the wood they say.
