on the subject of drying pecan, i too have had less than desirable results. years ago when i had an ind. saw for me i told him to saw some pecan in 1/2 thicks boards. i buried them in my drying shed and they promptly rolled up into i am not sure what. since i have sarted sawing i have sawn all pecan extra thick, and also sycamore too. those are my two worst wood to dry.

Pecan is a hickory. The common hickory we have up here is Shagbark. I love to look at the stuff but hate to work with it. Here's some in my office.






Does pecan look the same with the dark and the white mixed together? I've seen freshly cut boards that looked like rockers for chairs. And if I dry it too fast in the vac kiln (3 days) it seems to pick up a mind of its own. It will bend the way it wants. My planer and router complain about the stuff too. So nice to look at but so hard to work with.

Forgot to mention my mixed species. The brown and white board in the bottom pic is hickory. To the right is red beech from New Zealand and right of that is white oak. To the left of the hickory is cherry, then red beech and then cherry.

Pecan is usually more brown with little white.  It's not as varied in color as Pignut.  I have cut a lot that had some wild grain.  Here is a picture of wood from around a crotch.
