Hickory wood is extremely hard, heavy, tough and strong. There is not a harder American wood around then hickory wood. These same characteristics must have been used to describe General Andrew Jackson because he was nicknamed Old Hickory.
Hickory was used in the early days for wagon wheels due its strength. Finally woodworkers discovered its strength and beauty and started using it in furniture construction. Hickory wood is especially popular with dining chairs that take a lot of abuse. Hickory will withstand the wear and tear over the years that dining chairs are prone to take.
Hickory wood is actually in the same family as the walnut tree and has a very distinct grain pattern. Along with the unique grain pattern you also have a distinct contrast in grain color from very light to very dark brown. This look is not for everyone but hickory makes for a very unique look that is often used in rustic hickory furniture.
