Rustic Hickory

History and Characteristics of Rustic Hickory

The medium brown to a lighter yellow color tones of Hickory provide a warm feel for a wood product. The density of Hickory can be challenging when milling and waste can be an issue from Hickory being susceptible to insect attack. Hickory trees are not as big yielding smaller beams and boards and smell of Hickory is real sweet when milling. The end grain is distinct with pores in between the end grains.

Hickory is a classic American wood, popularly associated with barbequed or smoked meats, golf clubs, and tool handles. Reclaimed antique hickory flooring channels this diversity in application through its rapidly-changing coloration and classic patterning. Hickory floor planks can range in color from light vanilla to dark chocolate – sometimes in a single board. Knots, occasional nail holes, light surface checking, and possible worm tracks provide this wood with inimitable ‘tough’ characteristics.

 


Specifications

  • New Rustic solid wood flooring is normally milled to 3/4″ thickness .
  • Vintage Lumber is also able to meet customer’s requirements for both thinner (minimum 3/8”) and thicker solid flooring.
  • Most of our solid flooring is produced in random widths(RW) from 2” to 10”, on the full inch face. Typical RW ranges are 3” to 6”(3,4,5,6), 3” to 8”, 7” to 10”, or any combination needed. Board widths of over 20” are sometimes available in certain species. The wider the widths required, the higher the costs. Our RW flooring is usually not sold as a repeating pattern(equal lineal feet of each width). For prompt filling of orders, we base our RW counts on available widths in inventory, and we calculate a 9 or 10 board width sequence to facilitate installation to avoid all of one width remaining at the end.
